The State Of Black Mothers In America

We must DO THE WORK to unite all mothers. Our goal is to unite every single mother on this planet to understand the black mothers position and do everything within their own power to do what’s right - at home, at work and in our society.

So together with you, our friends and allies, let’s unite on this important discussion to talk about the issues, the policies that hold black mothers back, and how we can ALL advocate for change. Let’s hold hands and heal together. There is a lot to unpack but we must begin this important work and march forward together.

Black women are disproportionately affected by the global pandemic. Consider the following:


Statistically speaking, since California’s stay at home orders went into effect on March 19, black women in that state have spent nearly 120 hours more on child care than their white counterparts. 

And with ongoing unconscious biases in the workplace, police brutality, and civil unrest added to their burden, it’s amazing that black mothers haven’t succumbed to the pressure. As minorities in America without a current way to connect in person and vent frustrations, many are left holding back tears or staying silent for fear of judgment and misunderstanding.

That ends now.

Join Christine Michel Carter, the #1 global voice for working moms, Blessing Adesiyan, the founder of Mother Honestly, Neferteri Plessy, the founder of Single Moms Planet and a few other prominent black moms for an important and candid discussion on Juneteenth (June 19) from 11a-1p EST. Together we’ll discuss with thought leaders (who are also black moms) important issues such as maternal mental health, advocacy, employment and self-care.

Participation in the virtual conference is free.
