Overview

Black Love Matters: A Journey of Soul Stories is a collection of short stories, poetry, and reflections that explore, analyze, and highlight concepts and dynamics of Love that deeply affect the Black community. This collection fosters a myriad of experiences that celebrate and highlight the significance of Black Love as a catalyst for revolution, freedom, and unity. These experiences range from spirituality, activism, the power of music, sweet romance, and empowerment to stigmas and trauma plaguing our community. Black Love Matters: A Journey of Soul Stories include "Congratulations," a soul story about a young woman who is deeply hurt because the Love of her life chose to marry another, which causes her to make a conscious decision to undergo the process of healing so that she may love freely. The preface of this collection is dedicated to Prince Rogers Nelson-his brilliance and passion in his art is a reflection of pure magic and Love. Thus, sparking inspiration to pen this collection to urge people of African descent to remember the beauty and power of Black Love-that it is revolutionary and that it matters.
