The Black Love Awards

Celebrating the spirit of Black Love in our community and honoring couples who serve as an inspiration to all.

The Black Love Lives Conference scheduled for Saturday, March 16, 2013 at The University of Pennsylvania will culminate with The Black Love Awards and Reception honoring inspirational area couples.

The Black Love Awards & Reception will follow the day long of transformational  activities and workshops and will be held from 8:00 - 11:00pm at The Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz located 738 S. Broad Street.

Despite the harrowing statistics, societal challenges and media representation of our families, we know that Black Love is alive and well and these couples, newlyweds to 66 years in marriage are a testament to that.
