In It’s All Love, black writers celebrate the complexity, power, danger, and glory of love in all its many forms: romantic, familial, communal, and sacred.

Editor Marita Golden recounts the morning she awoke certain that she would meet her soulmate in “Meeting Joe.” Memoirist Reginald Dwayne Betts writes stirringly about serving time in prison and how that transformed his life for the better in a piece he calls “Learning the Name Dad.” New York Times bestselling author Pearl Cleage is at her best in the delicate, touching “Missing You.” Award-winning author David Anthony Durham enraptures listeners with his “An Act of Faith.” New York Times bestselling author L. A. Banks is both funny and wise in “Two Cents and a Question,” her beautiful essay of discovering love as a child. And the poetry of love is here too, from Gwendolyn Brooks’ classic “A Black Wedding Song” to works by Nikki Giovanni, E. Ethelbert Miller, and Kwame Alexander. This is a dazzling exploration of the wonderful gift of love.
