Dear Mama,

When it comes to Black Maternal Health, our work is not over when Black mothers survive and the child is born alive. Black maternal health should not fade into our peripheral because Black Maternal Health Week has passed In this episode we discuss being invited to do an art installation for Round 50 of Project Row Houses that centered Black Maternal Health, the importance of art in this movement and art’s capacity like nothing else to creep into the crevices of culture and push us forward. Before we jump into that convo we take a discuss witnessing our children during hard situations inspired by card number 19 from our Black Mama Magic Card Deck: I honor my child’s divine path. We hope this episode reminds you that motherhood is not the graveyard of dreams, that our children are divine beings on their own divine journey, and when your mothership hits rough waters to soften.
