In today’s compromising world, all forms of love struggle to rise above the chaos of modern civilization; But it’s Black History Month and I thought it fitting to talk about how Black people have continued to carve out spaces to love amidst some of the most brutal and oppressive conditions. Black love in itself is a revolutionary act.
Black Love Powerful
Black people, the world over, have contributed so much to both ancient and modern culture and civilization. It is no secret that much of that contribution has gone under appreciated, unnoticed, or down right hidden. Here in the United States that reality is ever more present as we continue to experience the attack and misrepresentation of black love in the media, film, and music. It is so important that we push back against these false narratives and highlight the importance of celebrating and demonstrating Black love, and its rich diversity, as a revolutionary act.
Black Love Threatens Oppression
My great grandmother, Mother Hamilton, was known for saying “love is a do word”. In other words, love is an act rather than a feeling. A demonstration rather than an emotion. This demonstration of love moves well beyond fleeting romance into tangible results like the nurturing of our children, food justice, celebrating self-care and rest, establishing and supporting businesses that hire Black youth, supporting Black marriage in all of its diversity, caring for our elders, honoring ancestors, ensuring the safety and protection of our families, building wealth, and taking pride in the care of our neighborhoods and communities. These are revolutionary acts of love that threaten oppression at its core.Read More
