Name: Christina
Age: 29
Hometown: Columbus, Ohio
Love Is: An intense appreciation for another, an unexplainable connection. It is multifaceted. Beautiful and ugly but powerful.

Last month I attended a brunch hosted by Blavity during Essence Festival. It was an event full of young, black women who all were there to network and learn one another. It was there I met Christina and we started talking about Baby Boy and the kind of “ghetto” love that is often portrayed when talking about black love.

Watch as Christina speaks earnestly of the loyalty that is the foundation of black love and so-called “ghetto” love.
