In the spirit of Valentine’s Day and the reflection of Black History Month, I’ve gathered names and a couple of video clips of memorable kisses and romantic scenes in black films. Reflect and be inspired. Please leave us your comments and other choices that you may have in the comment box below.
Jason’s Lyric – Lyric (Jada Pinkett Smith) & Jason (Allen Payne) – Very sizzling love scene.
How Stella Got Her Groove Back – The shower scene with Winston (Taye Diggs), how can you forget it? I don’t blame Stella (Angela Bassett) for falling for him.
Baby Boy – The scene with Joseph (Tyrese Gibson) & Yvette (Taraji P Henson) made me fall in love with baby boy.
Mo Better Blues with Denzel Washington; need I say more.
The Best Man – As the end credits roll, Quentin (Terrence Howard) and Shelby (Melissa De Sousa) are in bed together and can’t remember how they ended up there–priceless moment.
Boomerang – Another unforgettable & hilarious love scene is when an unlikely pair hooks up – Marcus (Eddie Murphy) and Lady Eloise (Eartha Kitt). When the lights go out, Eddie’s character hollers “darker…darker…”
Love Jones – The scene that stands out the most is when Nina (Nia Long) is upstairs and Darius (Lorenz Tate) is downstairs and they both are feigning for each other.
