A two-part reflection on Black motherhood
produced by You Had Me at Black and Cult TV
Some relationships are windows —they help you see beyond who and where you are. Other relationships are mirrors, bringing you closer to who you are. Motherhood is one relationship that acts as both a window and a mirror in our lives.
Mother's Jewels is a two-part reflection on black motherhood produced by the storytelling podcast, You Had Me at Black and CultTV, an interactive talk show. The 60-minute series explores how Black moms pour into their children, the intergenerational lessons they draw from (or reject), and the life experiences they lean on.
In part one of the series, we asked eleven women, "What's a conversation you had with your mom, and one you didn't have, that you couldn't wait to have with your children?"
The second part of the series explores the windows and mirrors of black motherhood from the perspectives of three dynamic women: The Working Beauty, a lawyer turned thrift expert and mom-to-be; marketing expert and mompreneur, Rickelle Gordon, and Reba Corrine, a sexpert, mom and bonus mom of five children.
