Liberation Movements and Black-on-Black Survival Love

It’s No Ordinary Love

Steven Randolph Cureton

Black women are long overdue for proper recognition as primary love interests and researchers who are so inclined must do a better job of uncovering examples of black men who proclaim black women as more than a default companion. A primary objective of this book is to examine love letters, civil rights pursuits, and interpersonal relations amongst prominent liberation icons. Additionally, exploring colorism, black power, nihilism, race manners, race matters, black feminism, secular verification of spirituality and racial casting will hopefully provide insight concerning whether black-on-black love is a survival type of love. This is attractive for any undergraduate and graduate level courses seeking to understand the nature of the black experience in America. Moreover, this book is intended to reach audiences interested in the real thin line between love and hate amongst black men and black women.

Thee “The In Her” just made a warrior’s land. Here comes Her DES for ire … Desire! His resurrection is My resurrection. Signaling the beginning of one final battle. Equipped with only the tools She gave. He must wisely choose to use them to get Her back from where She went.

Should He lose He dies! Should He win He lives! Pray He must. Pray I should in preparation for Her shadow will cast soon. At that time the hunt will begin. Settle in, pace your heart, focus your...
