Mothering in Color Info & Registration
Mic Drop (Mothering in Color: Dropping the Shields) with Aisha Williams, PhD.
If you are in need of soul-restoring conversation with other mothers showing up for themselves and their children despite the burdens of bias, this is a powerful place to land.
For me, our group is a really important opportunity where we can take the time to reflect and understand the tensions that we hold within ourselves, within our identities, within our own histories. Mamas, whether you do this within our group, within your own community, or even in quiet daily moments of introspection on your own- taking the time to understand where you have to hold ourselves together – where you tighten up, where you feel the need to stay silent or to scream, where you are afraid of exploding – this is a radical act of mothering – of parenting. We are all fighting to create space for ourselves, so that we have the room to fight for our beautiful children’s sense of safety, security, and belonging.
In our group, we will listen to each other actively, warmly, with the intention of supporting each other and creating space to offload old tensions and hurts. Our group is a deeply intentional space that we create together to hold and support each other. We do this so that we are not drawn back into old hurts and we don’t let the stresses and distresses of our histories, of our ancestry, of our fraught social context, run the show. Our goal is to be living and parenting, wholeheartedly, in community with those who see our value and beauty, and engaging fully in the present and keenly alive to the beautiful children we are nourishing and nurturing in our families.
Taking time and space for ourselves, to reflect, to listen, to honor ourselves and our histories, is how we as mothers, can ensure that our presence, and our homes, our families, can be a true refuge, a harbor from the storms that our children necessarily will face as people of color in the United States.
Wishing all of you, gorgeous mamas, the time and space, to reflect, to welcome, and to appreciate all the beautiful and broken pieces that make up who we are. Warmly, Aisha Williams, Ph.D.
