Kiese has written beautifully about the politics of love among Black men and women, not just romantically, but in rough political times like these.

Below, we are providing you links to two of his most recent essays, links to both of his books which are awesome and will give you your entire life.

But first watch the interview. It’s a great way to kick off your week. You’ll be so glad you did.
