A Historic Moment for Black Moms

I don’t know what did it for you but I was perfectly content doing my happy dance in my living room on Election night until I saw the image of the Obama family walking out onto the stage of Grant Park. That’s when I lost it and the waterworks came swiftly into town. That regal […]

The Black Mom Movement Begins!

My recent blog on the consistent lack of a black perspective whenever there is a mommy debate in this country, really touched a nerve with our community. The emails are still coming in!

Ladies. Mothers. Black women!! This is one of those times when I wish my keyboard could shout from the rooftops. When I wish my words could appear in neon lights across the sky in Batman signal fashion. For the past few days, I just can’t stop thinking about the recent news story where a black […]
