Black Love is a poetry anthology inspired by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art Fellowship entitled, “The Documentation of Black Humanity as a Weapon Against Oppression in Leimert Park and Harlem.” Edited by Michael Datcher, Black Love features writing by Imani Tolliver, Kim Benjamin, Jenoyne Adams, Ta’Shia Asanti, and Michael Datcher.
“Black humanity gets lost in transmission. If black humanity gets lost, black love doesn’t have a chance. Therefore the importance of this book. The poets writing in this anthology are navigating the difficult terrain of the heart. Traveling through dust, over rocks, past snakes. Biting through cactus thorns to taste the sweet water that is truth. Black Love is an invitation to sit down and drink with us” —Michael Datcher.
