Doesn't this clip just give you all the feels? I can't look away. I just love to see love.

This clip was recorded in an 1896 film called "The Kiss" by Thomas Edison. Yes, The Thomas Edison! This clip captures the first ever recorded kiss by a Black couple.

It was a first and it was revolutionary.

In 1999, the short was deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
