Today, we have many opportunities to ruminate about love in the Black community. From the Carters to the Obamas, Steph & Ayesha Curry to Cardi B & Offset, Queen Sugar to Love Is_____, we can’t get enough of “loving-while-Black.”
There is no disputing that the music in The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is classic. Yet, the classroom-inspired interludes spread out across 7 of the 15 tracks, have forced us to ongoingly question how we define love, the difference between being in love and loving someone, and the ways in which media influences our understanding.
L-O-V-E: a documentary short asks: have we, as a society, done better or worse to prepare our youth for the nuance, breadth and scope of love over the last two decades?
