Love is, Love Ain't

Posts Tagged ‘loveisloveaint

Love is Love Ain’t is taken from a scene in Toni Morrison’s Beloved, where Paul D and Sethe have been ruminating on their relationships (familial and conjugal) and what it means to love too much. One insists that “thin love ain’t love at all.” We’ve taken these lines as our inspiration and intend to take a humorous (we hope!) yet serious approach to discussing our experiences in and out of love and courtship. We’ve been friends for a long time, and realized that our relationship experiences aren’t as different as one would think. We’ve decided to share them in hopes of broadening the dialogue on black love and its various manifestations. We hope you’ll join us!
