Black Love at the NAACP Image Awards

Black love is a boundless exhibition of love between those of Black heritage regardless of gender or sexuality.

The strength of love is contagious. See, love is a universal way people express their affection to someone else and once we add in the Black experience, it exudes a special magic. Black love is lineage rich in our culture, customs, and traditions. It’s a boundless exhibition of love between those of Black heritage regardless of gender or sexuality. The beautiful thing about it is it differs with every couple but shares the common theme of being able to love your mate and be unapologetically Black while celebrating Black excellence. It’s the action of being proud of your heritage, hue, culture, and having an unabashed pride along with it. Seeing Black love up close is uplifting and infectious, so let’s appreciate some of the Black love we’ve seen at the NAACP Image Awards through the years.
