Black Love: Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance
The college sweethearts met while students the Yale School of Drama. In the beginning they weren’t lovers, just friends; the best of friends. For years they ran in the same collegiate circle and their bond grew deeper and eventually blossomed into a love neither of them could deny.
After graduation, on October 12, 1997 Angela married Courtney and they began the next phase in their lives together as one. As both their careers began to take off, the couple was blessed with two little miracles – twins born via surrogate after years of trying to conceive.
Angela and Courtney have created a successful model for Black marriage in Hollywood and first-time parenting in your 40s, and we salute them for it. Take a look back at their love in pictures.
Happy anniversary, Angela and Courtney!
