This special issue of the Journal of the MMLA aims to interrogate how transatlantic encounters, itineraries, and movements have shaped literary and cultural expressions, influencing the formation of both individual and collective knowledge. In particular, it aspires to foster a dialogue to address political, ethical, sexual, and aesthetic questions related to transatlantic interactions among people, practices, and ideas, expanding from traditional Eurocentric perspectives and canonized narratives to encompass a global perspective. This dialogue becomes even more relevant in the present days, considering the political and cultural implications of such motilities.

Much has been said about the state and failure of Black relationships in North America. Books like “Is Marriage for White people” by Ralph Richard Banks, gain traction by highlighting that Black women are three times as likely to remain single as white women. Research has shown that absent fathers produce a cultural cycle of parental absenteeism for Black men and women, and the repetitive traits that lead to divorce are environmental rather than genetic. Bottom-line, there are countless barriers and hurdles stacked against black relationships. Many couples struggle with the outside pressures that racism and social discrimination present.
