Much has been said regarding the current state of Black relationships in America. With a rising divorce rate, a dramatic increase in the amount of Black children being raised in single parent households, more and more Black men being incarcerated every year, and the psychological rifts that exist between Black men and women that stem from centuries of pain and fear, the Black relationship is in dire need of healing. This healing has arrived in the form of the Love Ethic. Based upon the belief that the relationship between Black men and women is the bedrock of the African American community and holds the key to wealth, equality and prosperity for the Black community, Kamau and Akilah take the reader on an historical journey through American history in search of Black love. Those who are single, married, divorced, or in committed relationships will draw encouragement, understanding and hope from this book. The Love Ethic is a text de eply embedded in the African American cultural tradition, as it attempts to look back as a way to move forward.
