Where does love come in the culture and history of black people? In this book, Bell Hooks's critical insight traces the ethic of love in the context of black lives. She examines the literary debate on love and dehumanization in the work of writers such as Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin and Toni Morrison and representations of love in film and television, including programmes like the "Cosby Show". Hooks talks to rappers; she traces the history of love from slavery, through the words of Martin Luther King and the Black Power Movement to the present day. She considers different domestic situations, including single mothers and black gays and lesbians. She also considers the effect on the black community of the deaths of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.

Acclaimed visionary and intellectual bell hooks began her exploration of the meaning of love in American culture with the bestselling All About Love: New Visions. Here she continues her love song to the nation in the groundbreaking and soul-stirring Salvation: Black People and Love.
Whether talking about the legacy of slavery, relationships and marriage in Black life, the prose and poetry of our most revered artists and leaders, the liberation movements of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, or hip-hop and gangsta rap culture, hooks lets us know what love's got to do with it.
Salvation is work that helps us heal -- and shows us how to create beloved American communities.About the Author:
