Where Did Our Love Go is the Go-To Resource for Love and Relationships
The statistics regarding African-American relationships are alarming: more than 40 percent of black men and women between the ages of 25-34 are unmarried. Editor Gil Robertson, IV, set out to understand the story behind the statistics, asking more than 40 African-American writers, journalists, sociologists, and other prominent voices in the community to reflect on their own relationships as well as on the status of black relationships in general.
Where Did Our Love Go organizes these essays into three different lifestyle categories: “single,” “married,” and “divorced.” The essayists come to diverse conclusions on the lessons they’ve learned from their own relationships, but the underlying importance of respect, faith, and perseverance come through. The result is a collection that is at once fascinating in its specificity and illuminating in its universality.
Featuring essays from Clay Cane, Amy Elisa Keith, Byron Pitts, Jessica Care Moore, Dr. Nicole LeBeach, Dr. R. L’Heureux Lewis-McCoy, and many more, Where Did Our Love Go is sure to become a valued resource for anyone interested in this ongoing issue.
