I wanted to find an empowering quote that represented Black mothers but instead was distracted by the TON of “Things Black Mom’s Say”, Black Mom Memes, and numerous jokes, that filled the search engine. Tanya Hayles, the founder of Black Moms Connection, would definitely tell you that being a parent isn’t easy and being a Black Mother is nothing to joke about – in fact it can be quite difficult.
This week I got to share the story of Black Moms Connection and how it came to be. I’m not a Mother yet, but it fills my heart to know that there is a community out there ready to step out and come out if this Mama needs some support.
After listening to Tanya and BMC’s story, I can say with total certainty that it takes a village to raise a child AND support a Mother.
If you’re a Black Mother, I would love to hear what you thought about this interview and if you want to share your story, be sure to connect with me via:
Much love to you Mamas out there <3
It's interviews like this that really makes me love this series more and more. Charisse and I have been IG 'friends' for about a year. We actually haven't met IRL but somehow she felt comfortable enough with me to share her story of her mental health journey.
I'll be honest with you folks, I try realllllly hard to make these interviews about 20-30 mins but we get so deep and cover so much, it's really hard to stop.
Enough explaining, just watch for yourself :)
(Again, I have to thank Charisse [@char_dave] for her realness and her honesty.
