Revolutionary Love #1 - Shamyra Howard Blackburn

A post shared by The North Star (@thenorthstarmedia)

In honor of Black History Month 2021 and in celebration of our original founder Frederick Douglass’s birthday (February 14th), The North Star presents Revolutionary Love, a video campaign for everyday people to submit their thoughts on what it means to live in “revolutionary love.” In our first video, Shamyra Howard Blackburn expounds on why her love for her husband – a Black man – in America is revolutionary. If you’d like to be featured, send a video (between 15 seconds and 1 minute) using the prompt “My love is revolutionary because it is…” detailing how you demonstrate love in a manner that defies opposition.
