Tuesday’s Love Jones of course originated from the 1997 hit movie “Love Jones” featuring Larenz Tate, Nia Long, Isaiah Washington, Lisa Nicole Carson, Bill Bellamy. The story takes place with Darius Lovehall, a young black poet in Chicago who starts dating Nina Moseley, a beautiful and talented photographer. While trying to figure out if they’ve got a “love thing” or are just “kicking it,” they hang out with their friend, talking about love and sex. Then Nina tests the strength of Darius’ feelings and sets a chain of romantic complications into motion.
This movie was paramount in many areas. The music, the poetry, message and vibe of the film really set the tone for black romance films leading right into the millennium. As we shuffle through this thing called life, it becomes difficult to hold on to love while trying to find out who we are as individuals. As in the movie, Darius Lovehall and Nina Moseley struggled to find common ground EVEN though their love, passion and connection were VERY evident. We soon find ourselves testing love through social settings and the friends we keep. Sad to say, this plays an horrific role in our overall decisions we make in our relationships.
Here at Put A Wedge In It Blogs, we use the contrast of the movie “Love Jones” to teach our readers to love themselves first, have confidence in themselves first and to truly know thyself first, so that when LOVE ARRIVES…you will be ready for it! Clearly, in the movie, if Darius Lovehall and Nina Moseley truly knew the power of their love; the changes they went through would had never happened. By following this blog, you just may be able to cut out the drama and free yourselves to love
