The purpose of this conversation is to move the dialogue forward about Black mothering during a pandemic and uprising. We will discuss the murder of our community member George Floyd, the uprising, and how it not only affects us as women and mothers but also how our children are impacted. This conversation will create a dialogue about change, how to heal, and how to move forward as conscious women and mothers.
A virtual conversation about the identity politics of Black Mothers and how to decolonize the way society views motherhood.
