Black Love Lives! Long Live Black Love!

What is Love?

What is love
only kisses hugs
meetings of the minds
what about times when minds do not meet
is love not present in the air in the blood of loving souls
too ignorant to know the test of love
the many ways it strives to be and not be
yet is always
and forever
not always tender
sometimes rough and sharp
like a razor cutting to the heart
love is pain
we take to grow
be strong again
tears in the night
alone again
we find ourselves
if love was even real
yet it was
if we see
if we look
beyond romantic notions of everything is cool always with love
but we know the blues of love
when we miss the wrords from lips so tender in truth
but we miss them
in haste
to be the authority on love
yet love
has beeen around since eternity and will stay
when lovers have gone away
it will stay
in spite of all the tears
the fights
the verbal bouts
even the put outs
and come backs
and gimme my keys
and why don't you call
and don't you still care
and why did you go
and do you really lover her or really love him
after all the time we shared
how could you do this to me
after all I did for you in the night
what is love
sometimes we must enjoy the hurt the pain
to grow
be wise again
this time
with God
in the center of things
but try
for love is precious
time is short
life must be lived with joy
through it all
let joy arise
take control of love.

Black Love Lives, directed by filmmaker Nisa Ra is a refreshing short documentary exploring lasting loving African American relationships.

The video highlights how authentic couples (from ages 20s to 90s) ‘connected’ as well as their strategies for making love work.  The often unheard voices of the males provides further insight.

Black Love Lives presents images that reflect a bridge or connection in a world where "dis-connection" has too often become a way of life.
