Tucson author Jessica P. Pryde will be signing copies of Black Love Matters: Real Talk on Romance, Being Seen, and Happily Ever Afters, a collection which showcases Black voices, some of which are also queer voices. This book signing is a joint presentation by the Chamber and the Women's Foundation for the State of Arizona.
Black Love Matters is "an incisive, intersectional essay anthology that celebrates and examines romance and romantic media through the lens of Black readers, writers, and cultural commentators. Romantic love has been one of the most essential elements of storytelling for centuries. But for Black people in the United States and across the diaspora, it hasn't often been easy to find Black romance joyfully showcased in entertainment media."
In this collection, revered authors and sparkling newcomers, librarians and academicians, and avid readers and reviewers consider the mirrors and windows into Black love as it is depicted in the novels, television shows, and films that have shaped their own stories. Contributors include Carole V. Bell, Jasmine Guillory, Da'Shaun L. Harrison, and more.
