Show Notes

You heard from Black fathers, now it's time for Black mamas to take a ride in the Blackseat! Christine, Aneiko and Dana - mothers of Black teenagers - talk about how they are preparing their children to be Black adults in a hostile world, while also examining whether they are also sheltering their kids. We even went back into how they were raised, and how that impacts their parenting style. Issues of gender and class came up as well, and the ladies shared their definition of Blackness as well as their Black heroes. Ultimately, Black mothers love their children the same as anyone else, but have an extra burden and responsibility for their Black brood. If you have been raised by a Black mama, know one, or have NEVER discussed motherhood with your Black friends, this episode is for you.
