Black love is, dismantling generational trauma Black love is creating a nurturing environment, for me and my mines. Black love is rest Black love is knowing my ancestors humanity, is not only from pain Black love is a form of resistance Black love is embracing my inner petty Black love is laughing at “Karen’s” as they envy my black radiance Black love is a revolutionary act Intimate Conversations happen on Instagram Live on CD Forum's Instagram, every Saturday at 3PM Pacific Time.
