About this Event

Intimacy is fundamental to sustaining a healthy, romantic relationship. With true intimacy, partners allow themselves to be open and vulnerable; to discuss emotions, experiences, and needs freely. They rely on each other for safety, both physically and emotionally.

In INTO-ME-SEE, licensed therapist Dr. Jeannelle Perkins-Muhammad explores the cultural and personal factors that can make it challenging for Black couples to develop and maintain intimacy. The book's title comes from a cultural idiom that describes the ability to look beyond the physical and look deeper to see the greater connection to another person.

Unique among books on intimacy, INTO-ME-SEE explores specific cultural issues affecting Black couples, including how a history of slavery and the ongoing racism in America have created relationship expectations that often work against intimacy.

Dr. Jeannelle Perkins-Muhammad is joining us on the Busboys stage, along with public relations professional Nyree D. Wright, to share more about her book and how Black couples have overcome challenges to find deeply intimate and rewarding relationships. Copies of the book will be available for purchase during and after the event, and Dr. Perkins-Muhammad will be signing following the program.

This event is free and open to all. Our program begins at 6:00 pm, and will be followed by an audience Q&A. Copies of INTO-ME-SEE will be available for purchase before and after the event. Please note that this event is in-person and will not be livestreamed. 


We ask that guests RSVP in order to receive direct updates about the event from Busboys and Poets Books
