Khyneesha Edwards

Khyneesha Edwards is a graphic designer, born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. In partnership with yoga instructor Joshua Davis, she will host Black Boy Joy Yoga + Black Boy Joy Art Exhibition. The yoga component of the project will span summer 2024, with a yoga event happening once in June, July and August onsite at a local Black-owned business or within a historically Black neighborhood. The art exhibition will take place in August 2024 and display various creative interpretations of “Black boy joy” from 25 Black male-identifying artists ages 7+.

This project aims to create a safe space for Black men and boys to unapologetically claim joy and express themselves in ways that promote their happiness. The grant funds will be used to cover all project operations.
