You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas. - Shirley Chisholm

It Takes a Village

Hey Girl, Hey!

Welcome to Moms of Color, where we like to note that while black motherhood is beautiful; it isn’t always a ray of sunshine.

 Sister, I would like for you to remember that you, black woman, are the original woman. You are strength, a creator, a trend setter, a Queen containing royal DNA. As you  live in a world that tries to keep your strength a secret;  Let me be someone to continuously remind you. We’ve always lifted our heads high, and we will continue to do so because we have continued work to do.  Our kids need us, Our Community needs us and with the continuous failures of society it’s time that we realize the issues  that directly impact us are only going to be fixed once we unite and look at them as all of Our responsibilities. Let’s get back to understanding that it takes a village and lets gain the confidence in knowing that WE ARE THAT VILLAGE.
