DBM Episode 16 Raising Free Black Children

Dear Mama We often dream FOR our children. What if we dreamed WITH our children? What if we discovered who they are instead of trying to determine who they should become? What if we allowed them to dance outside the box no matter how much it scared us? What if we let our children be free? Our intention in this episode is to share how our personal journeys towards freedom impacted our parenting and inspire you to begin to parent from a place from freedom and not fear.  As Black mothers we KNOW it’s difficult which is why the discussion is so necessary. Be sure to tag us on social media when sharing the episode and use the hashtag #DecolonizeParenting. Let's get free yall!

DBM Episode 27 The Upper Room

#DearMama If you’re feeling like you’re in quicksand, disconnected, or running on empty, then this is the episode for you!

Let us know what your answer is or even if you couldn’t come up with an answer send us your thoughts and questions about this episode.

DBM Episode 19 Raw & Uncut

#DearMama Sometimes the armor gets heavy.  Sometimes we gotta put down our sword and shield and cry and grieve and hold each other.   There is no outline for this episode because we scrapped it.  We felt heavy and decided to show up authentic. When we hit record, we had no idea where we were going and releasing this episode and laying bare all of our vulnerability is scary as the truth often is.  The truth is this is where the healing is. The truth is this is how we get out of the valley, how we get to the mountaintop, how we get to freedom.

DBM Episode 25 Part 1 BMCW19 featuring Margaret Wilkerson Sexton

Dear Mama: Let all the myths of motherhood crumble at your feet.  Dig motherhood out from under the rock of sacrifice. Look at your children and be willing to be a student, be willing to receive.  See them as path makers and pathfinders. It is work. It takes presence. It takes an open heart and a willing soul. All the things white supremacy is built to beat out of us. The truth is, if we are committed to building the Promise Land outside of us by dismantling systemic and institutional oppression, then we've got to be willing to build a Promise Land within us. This is not to say that motherhood is easy; that it's not frustrating and exhausting but it ain't the thing killing us. White supremacy is. This is our prayer for every Black mother. This is our declaration for #BlackMamaCreativeWeek - Motherhood is not the graveyard of dreams. We’re excited to be joined in this episode by one of our Patron Donna Jeneen and National Book Award nominee Margaret Wilkerson Sexton. Thank you for supporting us all week. If you missed any of our Facebook Lives, you can still check them out on our Facebook page and we will have all of our live videos up on YouTube by Tuesday, July 2nd.  Please be sure to tag us and use the hashtag #BlackMamaCreative #BlackMamaCreativeWeek #BMCW19 Let us know how your felt about the week by emailing us and engaging with us through social media comments.
