about black love lives
BLACK LOVE LIVES is a full video exploration of lasting African American love and relationships featuring interviews with 6 couples ranging in age from 20s through 90s. “Despite the despairing national statistics and media reports on black family/marriage, there are many successful relationships and couples in my circle of friends and community. The impetus for the film was my curiosity in learning how they ‘connected’ as well as their personal strategies for making love last,” says director, Nisa Ra. (click the title to view trailer)
