An elegantly designed volume, printed in sepia and enhanced with photographs, A Love No Less presents the letters of African American lovers of all walks of life - from slave letters to those of the celebrated turn-of-the-twentieth-century poet Paul Laurence Dunbar- soldiers fighting World War II- notable entertainers, businessmen, and civic leaders. Whether they were penned by literary masters or hastily scribbled by soldiers writing home to their wives or girlfriends, the letters are eloquent expressions of the writers most intimate feelings and touching revelations of the things that mattered most in their lives.
