Single Black Moms get a new spokeswoman

Slide4

(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.
