Black Love Matters
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Rus Funk and Dr. Armon Perry in this lively and un-scripted conversation about Dr. Perry’s new book Black Love Matters: Authentic Men’s Voices on Marriages & Romantic Relationships (Routledge Press, 2020)
Black men have lots to say about love, relationships and marriage; but their voices have not often been heard. Dr. Perry’s valuable new book tracks men’s voices on sex, trials and trauma, relationship changes, and “love and manhood”. These authentic voices expose an important contribution to our efforts to both meaningfully reach men; and our efforts to promote and support healthy, respectful and equitable relationships.
