For the final installment of this year’s EBONY Love campaign series, Entertainment Tonight host Nischelle Turner discussed learning what love is through her mother’s eyes on a trip to Africa.
“I went to Africa with my mother and it hit me,” Turner said. “The minute I turned around and saw her through a different lens. I saw a woman almost childlike, who was giddy, and experiencing things for the very first time as was I.”
The TV personality explained that Black love is “getting to share this experience being in the motherland with my mother, the person I love most on this earth.”
Scroll through the videos below to hear what rapper YFL Cleveland, gospel singer Doe Jones, Access host Scott Evans, E! Nightly Pop host Nina Parker, activist/educator Brittany Packnett and the girl group June’s Diary had to say about love.
