This is an “Empty the Crates” ... Read more

Dear Mama,

Take a trip with me back to when you read your first book by Terry McMillian, E. Lynn Harris or Eric Jerome Dickey and their names & their characters names rolled off our tongues like family members.  These authors wrote Blackness without explanation or apology. In these books we were allowed to love, fail, explore, and soar without the weight of being flattened by whiteness. Above all else tho... Read more

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 Lan... Read more

Dear Mama: We believe EVERY BLACK MAMA matters and when we say EVERY we mean EVERY.  This episode is dedicated to the mamas giving birth in the belly of the beast of white supremacy, the US prison system, and the birth workers like our guest Doula Chauntel Norris who refuse to sit and wait for the world to change but live the words of Audre Lorde, we are ones we’ve been waiting for.

We appreciate your support... Read more

Dear Mama: Let’s take a deep dive past sex tips and tricks, beyond stimulation and center pleasure.  Pleasure lasts beyond orgasms. Pleasure pours into us, inspires us and touches our deepest creativity.  We’re talking nude yoga, Black porn, weekday sex and kundalini so this is what we call an #EarbudsEpisode meaning this episode contains explicit language of a sexual nature so you may wanna ask your little ones to put their ear...

#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 wher... Read more

#DearMama In our darkest hour, when our deepest fears come to life, do we bury our head in the bloody wounded sand of America or do we heal?  We look back at our first episode, recorded immediately following the 2016 Election, and examine where we are now as opposed to where we thought we’d be and how that election transformed our lives as Black women, as Black creatives, and as Black mothers surprisingly for the better.  Be sur...

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 t... Read more
