our story

Girl meets boy. Girl thinks it is love. It is not. Girl listens to Erykah Badu’s Green Eyes 744 times to understand her broken heart. Cheesy, but true. A broken heart led an inquisitive mind to explore the relationship between love, music and history.  

In 2011, founder  Monique Constance experienced a heartbreak that led her on a journey to understand love. Using music to heal, she grew to understand how much life influenced art.  This understanding became a need to examine how much Black music tells the story of the African Diaspora. Monique wanted to create something that captured unheard stories and showed the historical importance of Black music.

Today, Black Love Project is a cultural institute that celebrates the rich culture of the African Diaspora. We believe the best way to understand culture is through love, music and history.
