Love Jones RVA

Now Accepting Submissions for Afrikana's Love Jones RVA Exhibition


We all know Virginia is for lovers. Afrikana is, too. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the iconic noir romantic classic, Love Jones, we thought what better way to celebrate than by highlighting loving couples right here in RVA! We will present a photo exhibition that will debut at our 2nd annual festival, this Sept!

Remember how Darius and Nina held you captive? How connectivity was defined and then redefined? How it became prose and then love in the making? Well we want to hear all about how you and yours created your very own Love Jones. Send us a picture and a paragraph telling us your unique Richmond love story. We are accepting submissions and are looking to celebrate all types of love: young, seasoned, traditional and nontraditional. We will select a total of six couples to be photographed by our professional photographer and showcased throughout the festival.

This is your chance for a little PDA. C’mon, kiss and tell us… When, where and how did your RVA love story unfold?

Stay in the loop
