Stories like ones from beauty blogger Tia Williams whose essay “Found Love In A Hopeless Place” explores a relationship with a younger man, and Velma Pace whose essay “It’s Not Where You’re From…It’s Where You’re At,” details her long but ultimately triumphant journey to love, are part of what makes the book special. R&B singer Anthony Hamilton and his wife Tarsha Hamilton submit essays from their own unique viewpoints of their marriage. By including the spectrum of Black experience for the single, the newly married, the longterm married and the happily and unhappily divorced, “Where Did Our Love Go” provides a needed overview of contemporary Black love. With reality shows that mine our dysfunctional relationships ever more popular, this book of honest essays about real people should help contribute to a clearer view not just of where Black love is, but where it’s going.
