Black Love is Forever Town Hall

Media Title

Is there a crisis underway in black America’s relationships department? Where are all the “good black men?” And why are black women at the lowest end of the matrimony totem pole?

Few people are more capable or qualified to ask those thorny questions and be the impetus behind their exploration than veteran journalist-editor Gil Robertson. His popular past titles—2006’s Not In My Family: AIDS in the African-American Community and Family Affair: What It Means to Be African American Today in 2009—gathered essays from a cross-section of black luminaries that deeply delve into issues of importance to both individuals and the collective. And his latest, February’s Where Did Our Love Go: Love and Relationships in the African-American Community, offers an array of viewpoints on a topic of constant inquiry and conversation, from barstools and kitchen tables to barber shops and nail salons.

This special town hall meeting, Black Love is Forever, inspired by Robertson’s book, aims to deconstruct and bring light to the good, bad and ugly of modern-day mate-seeking and marriage maintenance in black America with a learned group of Philadelphians, each with their own unique set of beliefs and experiences. Moderator Dyana Williams will lead an open, frank discussion with Dr. Tina Scott, PW contributor Tonya Pendleton and authors Nicholas King and Kevin Carr. It’s sure to be a memorable afternoon—one that’ll hopefully conclude with more answers than queries. / KENYA BEVERLY
