Black Motherhood In Times Of Quarantine

I’ve been working on a series that is close to my heart and important during this time. A project that centers Black mothers and their feelings during this global pandemic, something actively ignored by the mainstream media. I launched #Blackmotherhoodintimesofquarantine because despite the many ways Black women hold the world together we are ignored and treated as if we’re invisible.

While this project centers on mothers, I hope that the viewers and participants will understand and offer all Black woman space. Grant them grace. Stop asking them to lead so that non-black kids can “learn”. Open their eyes and see this world keeps spinning because of the constant work done despite being silenced at every turn.

You can view the project at Baobabwellness
