The final episode in our Black Love & Black History series this month is takes a look at what Black love and marriage looked like after slavery. We talked to The Dopest Black Historian, Whitney Brantley, about how Black people lived after slavery and the war and what lasting impacts slavery and oppression overall had on their ability to establish and maintain relationships. Think of this as picking up where our convo w/Dr. Reyes left off. Enjoy!
