In Black culture, the unbreakable bond between Black couples has been a source of strength and resilience for generations. This bond continues to withstand the test of time and has played a crucial role in shaping the community’s identity. To commemorate the impact of Black Love, BLK, the premier dating app for Black singles, is using Black History Month as a backdrop to celebrate this important element of Black culture.

Black Love is more than just a romantic relationship between two individuals. It is a celebration of the community’s history, identity, and culture. BLK is not only honoring this important element of Black culture but also telling the stories of our community in a unique and powerful way.

The visualizer chronicles Black love from 900 B.C. to today, featuring stories of African tradition to the innovative cultural history Black people created in America. The video talks about African wedding traditions like “jumping the broom,” which showcased who became the decision-maker in the home. It also dives into how Black Americans celebrated marriage with pride and references influential wives during the Civil Rights Movement like Coretta Scott King and Betty Shabazz. It goes on to share how the 1970s and 1980s saw a wave of cultural shifts, embracing the diversity of Black love. TV shows and films in the 1980s showcased Black love reminding us of its ever-evolving nature.

The video concludes with mentions of how the dating landscape has been revolutionized thanks to the rise of dating apps with over 300 million users worldwide. BLK shares that it’s where true connections can be built, saying, “This is how we date.”
