"Life Sentences: Freeing Black Relationships" is a Black man's response to the devastating effect of the Euro-Western concept of love on Black relationships. Author, Mzee Lasana Okpara (formerly Fred Hord) demonstrates keen insight and confronts complex contemporary and historical issues which thwart efforts towards genuine bonding between the Black man and woman. Okpara's voice is intimate, challenging, and resolute.
