Radical Black Mothering

  • Weeksville Heritage Center 158 Buffalo Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11213 United States (map)

Weeksville Heritage Center is launching its 2018-2019 season rooted in the themes of Race and Reproduction. This month, we center Black lifegivers and affirm that Black mamas indeed matter.

Community conversations have been an integral bridge building tool for us at WHC and this time, we are focusing on Black mothers. What does Black motherhood look like in 2018? With hatred bubbling back to the surface, how are we teaching our children about justice and equity? In what ways are we honoring our children's queerness or our own? Is a work-life balance possible in a country run on capitalism? What tools are needed to support and mold a radical Black child?

Brooklyn-based writer Ashley Simpo's story on Huffington Post about co-mothering with her best friend inspired this event and we are elated that she will be the moderator of the evening's community conversation.
