Tisa Bryant and Ernest Hardy

The Black Book, Volume IV: Black Love in the Hour of Chaos

Using film clips, music videos, excerpts from literature, and samples from social media, Tisa Bryant and Ernest Hardy celebrate black love in all its forms: romantic, familial, friendly, communal. This dense but fast-moving presentation looks at the creation, manifestation, nurturing, and resilience of black love in the face of white supremacy and anti-blackness across generations.
