Dear Mama,

When it comes to Black Maternal Health, our work is not over when Black mothers survive and the child is born alive and we will not let it fade into our peripheral.  In this episode we discuss being invited to do an art installation for Project Row Houses Round 50 entitled Race, Motherhood, and Health.  We also discuss the importance of art in this movement and art’s capacity like nothing else to creep into the crevices ...

#DearMama  We have a right to explore all the ways to tap into our freedom.  Motherhood should be an opportunity, an experience, a journey of expansion.  Liberation is about breaking down any barrier that binds you, even borders.  We must always be willing to do whatever AND GO wherever we can to be free this lifetime.

    #DearMama, in the year ahead, we are calling in love, joy and feelings of belonging.

    We wish for you tranquility, security and the unshakable knowing that you are enough.

    Just as you are.

    Your life is not for the purpose of comparing to others. Your life is your own and you are your own best thing.

    #DearMama, don't think it peculiar or strange to have #liberation heavy on your mind in this season.

    We're leaving an old year behind and naturally, it's got us yearning to be untethered. It's got us wanting to feel new. We feel strong, full of possibility and brimming with hope, daring to believe that going forward we can do what we were never able to in the past -- get all the way free.

    #DearMama, sometimes you just need to gift yourself with a deep whoo-sah!⁣

    Put yourself on time out, go to an empty room or a quiet corner, and just allow your chest to expand with breath. ⁣

    Feel gratitude. Feel frustration. Feel whatever it is that you need to feel for that moment, without self-judgment.⁣

    Allow yourself to simply be.⁣

    Exist fully and unapologetically in your Blackness. Suspend yourself in love. Love for se...

    #Dear Mama Exhale. Amen. Ashe White folk gon white folk & patriarchy is a helluva drug.  We all we got and thank God we got each other.  No one is coming to save us because we have the creativity and brilliance to save ourselves.  So let's approach this election as an opportunity to be imaginative.

    #DearMama we need to make time for joy and create space to celebrate ourselves and each other. Let's throw our heads back and laugh from our bellies. Let's be free amongst each other. Let's affirm our sisterhood. Let's shine.

    #DearMama we were lied to when we were told that children were to be seen and not heard. Many of us were harmed because of that popular notion.

    Changing oppressive ideologies and false narratives begin with us, in our homes and communities, and often in our own bodies, hearts, and minds.

    Now is the time to allow your inner child to speak. Listen intently to her. Speak to her, praise, and affirm her.

    Give Black girls the care they d...

    #DearMama, though you may often feel out of place know that you are exactly where you belong. No matter what borders you cross or which ones crossed you. Whether the moves you made were by choice, under duress, or by force. You may look for a place outside of yourself to call home but home is within you. You have a right to be here. The land beneath you and the sky above you is yours to claim.

    #Dearmama it's time to tune in to your creativity with intention. It's time to liberate yourself from the false and often unattainable ideas of how your creativity is SUPPOSED to look. It's time for you to #decolonize by divesting from #grindculture, ableist productivity ideology, formulas, and comparison. It's time for you to rediscover the joy in your art.

    #DearBlackPeople Birthing in a supportive chosen environment should not be othered or a privilege.  It should valued as the norm.  Whether we give birth or not we should all be connected to the experience.  We should all be fighting for Black birth persons to be empowered to articulate and unapologetically create the birth experience we want long before a positive pregnancy test.  Black maternal health does not begin with pregnant ...
