WPGC’s Black History Black Love panel discussion celebrated black love in all its forms. The event brought a crowd to DC Lottery Live on Thursday afternoon.
Moderated by Todd B of WPGC and Shantell Jamison of EBONY — which published a special edition of the magazine on the Obamas’ love and legacy — the panel featured six couples with diverse and remarkable love stories.
