Vintage Black Love: 15 Images Of Classic Couples

Today is Valentine’s Day! The day you have to sit down somewhere and celebrate love (because Hallmark told us to). But instead of telling you what to do today, what to wear, or what last-minute gifts you can scrape together, since it’s Black History Month, why not check out historical Black love? People talk about relationship goals and name some of their favorite superstar couples of today, including the Beys and Jays, Wills and Jadas, and the Denzels and Paulettas. We agree that they’re lovely pairs who give us all the feels every time they step out together. But we found some of our favorite photos of classic couples, and a few you may not even remember or have known about. Because what better way to enjoy a day about love than to celebrate the beauty of it all in pictures? Check out these beautiful couples in black and white (and a few in color — because why not?):
