Dear Mama: Let all the myths of motherhood crumble at your feet.  Dig motherhood out from under the rock of sacrifice. Look at your children and be willing to be a student, be willing to receive.  See them as path makers and pathfinders. It is work. It takes presence. It takes an open heart and a willing soul. All the things white supremacy is built to beat out of us. The truth is, if we are committed to building the Promise Land outside of us by dismantling systemic and institutional oppression, then we’ve got to be willing to build a Promise Land within us. This is not to say that motherhood is easy; that it’s not frustrating and exhausting but it ain’t the thing killing us. White supremacy is. This is our prayer for every Black mother. This is our declaration for #BlackMamaCreativeWeek – Motherhood is not the graveyard of dreams.
