The iconic Black romance film Love Jones premiered on March 14, 1997, and it is with great privilege that we still get to watch and celebrate it 25 years later.

From the sultry records of John Coltrane and Lauryn Hill on the soundtrack to the ever-so-charming smile of Larenz Tate and Nia Long’s masterful acting, Love Jones made a timeless landing in the Black community. Some skeptics might misinterpret this film as “that Black love movie filled with emotional turmoil and a predictable ending.” But Love Jones is actually a poetic composition that tours the various domains of love.
