I gotta Love Jones
I remember Love Jones vividly. I was in my freshman year of college and thought, "this is it" I am out here to figure out what I am going to do with the rest of my life. I am going to get the education and maybe fall in love on the way. I wanted the Love Jones romance and relationship. I envisioned that I would sit and read my poetry and make art while sitting at the side of a wonderful man who was going to understand me the only way that another YGB could. Okay, so 13 years later and a whole lot of heartache and ups and down I realize that Love Jones was a movie that epitomized the time that I was living in and even though it never came to be my reality, it led me on a path of being true to yourself and remembering art along the way. Thank you Harlem Renaissance and just a FYI I did marry a poet in the end.
