(SingleBlackMom.wordpress.com) – As the world spun on its head with news that Beyonce had given birth to twins, one mom took out a pen and wrote an open letter that will make you rethink motherhood.

(Coming June 20, 2017 at 4 pm EST)

“Dear Beyonce,

Do you have a minute? Sit down. Let’s have a chat. I’m so happy that your twins are here, that they are home and that you’re a mom of three, your husband a father of four. Parenthood is the best, I know you agree.

That’s why I’m hoping that you’ll standĀ up, get the world in formation and do more for the children and families of NICU community. Let’s face it: The NICU is not a place where healthy children go. For some children, it’s the last “home” they will ever know. Many children die. Many children live there for months and months and months so much time goes by that volunteers have to hold the baby.

Single Black Moms get a new spokeswoman

(SingleBlackMom.wordpress.com) – When it comes to our children, Single Black Moms don’t take no mess so when the world saw Wanda Durant grab her son by the chin and pull him to her, they might not have been ready for what would come next but single Black moms everywhere understood.

Like a members of a tribe, we viewed that moment with a knowing pride, sense of redemption and renewed purpose. Every day we sing the blues – and relish in the joys – of being single Black mothers. We defy the stereotypes. We re-brand ourselves. We shutdown haters and build up our children.

Until Wanda Durant, we did that usually on a daily basis, often by ourselves on the most local of levels. But with the 2017 NBA Championship won by Mama Durant’s son, Kevin, single Black moms gained an international spokeswoman, a marketing ambassador and a sister in the struggle.
