Episodes of BlackLove: HBCU Edition Out Now

We love to see Black love! It’s something about seeing couples be there for each other through thick and thin, and look good doing it. Part of Black love story that we’re not hearing about enough is all the love found on our HBCU campuses. Thankfully, the show BlackLove: HBCU Edition is shining a light on this wonderful experience.

Through several episodes, get a rare look inside the relationships of:

Codie and Shone of Howard University 

Anita and Demetrius of Southern University 

Tia and Yasmine of Spelman College 

Leticia and Joe of Tuskegee University  

Sydney and Les of Hampton University 

Randall and LaShawn of University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff 

And more!

The series shines a light on all the unique ways Black love can emerge. For example, Codie and Shone are best friends. “I met my best friend sophomore year at Howard University (we’re class of 2005), and she says I just came up to her and told her we should be friends,” remembers Codie. “I don’t know if it went down like that, but we have been besties ever since!” Tia and Yasmine are also best friends who met at Spelman as freshmen in 2006. “Spelman College forever has our hearts and has empowered us to truly be the change we want to see in the world,” said Tia.

These couples have brought the HBCU standard of excellence into their relationships, and are thriving for it! Some of the couples found love at first sight, some reconnected after years of being on each other’s radar. Several of the couples have kept their love alive despite living in different states or even different countries! Their stories aren’t nearly the same, but the love they have for each other is everlasting.
