Meet Leva and Sky Parker, the creators of a fresh, new take on the dating scene. Inspired after reading about their aunt’s journal about a steamy, love affair with an old Hollywood actor (which had to be made up, right?) Leva and Sky navigate between AI generated dates and real dates and learn that dating for single black females is not for the faint at heart. What does real love look like? And can black women achieve it?
