Where does love come in the culture and history of black people?
Acclaimed visionary and intellectual bell hooks offers groundbreaking critical insight in this new book, which traces the ethic of love in the context of black lives.
She examines the literary debate on love and dehumanisation in the work of writers such as Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin and Toni Morrison, and representations of love in films and TV programmes like The Cosby Show. She talks to rappers; she traces the history of love from slavery, through the words of Martin Luther King and the Black Power movement, up to today. Moving on to role models, she considers black single mothers, black lesbians and gays and the devastating effect on the black community of the deaths of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.
Continuing the exploration begun in All About Love bell hooks here suggests new visions to heal wounds inflicted by a culture of lovelessness.
