Black Love: The Interviews

Melissa & Allessandra Bradley-Burns

Episode Summary

In this 2017 never broadcast interview for the second season of Black Love doc, Melissa and Allessandra Bradley-Burns share their love story.

Episode Notes

When Melissa and Allessandra first met at Georgetown, they didn't care for each other. Little did they know that their paths were destined to cross again. Years later Allessandra and Melissa would find themselves working for the same non-profit and 6 hours plus 175 questions would (unbeknownst to them) be the beginning of their relationship. From the adjustments that come with being a blended family, to navigating the world (and its legalities) as a same-sex couple, this couple has been through a whirlwind.  Through it all they have found a way to continuously support each other and reaffirm that they are "all in".
