Why OWN’s “Black Love” Is So Necessary

OWN‘s highly anticipated new series “Black Love” aired Tuesday night and Twitter was on fire! I was so excited to see such an awesome display of genuine, successful BLACK love.

With more than half of marriages in the US ending in divorce, it’s refreshing to see couples committed to working to make their marriage work. Celebrity couples spoke candidly about the highs and lows of married life.

Black Love highlights love stories from the black community and seeks to answer the burning question, What is the secret to making a marriage work? Husband-and-wife filmmakers Codie and Tommy Oliver present real, honest, emotional and sometimes cringeworthy love stories from some of the mostsuccessful people in business and entertainment as well as everyday couples. Featured couples include Oscar® winner Viola Davis and Julius Tennon, Hollywood power couple Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin, NAACP Image Award® winner Tia Mowry-Hardrict and actor Cory Hardrict, NAACP Image Awardnominee Flex Alexander and Grammy®-nominated recording artist Shanice, gospel singer Erica Campbell and music producer Warryn Campbell, NAACP Image Award nominee Vanessa Bell Calloway and Dr. Anthony Calloway, and many more—each offering a unique take on love.

During commercial breaks my attention went to twitter where #BlackLoveDoc was trending:
