SisterSong and the Atlanta Doula Collective invite you to “In Remembrance of Stolen Black Motherhood”
When the rage settles, and the fires simmer, what do the Mothers return to other than the emptiness that was once filled with the vitality, hope and future of their children? An even more appropriate question to ask now would be, how do we remember them? How do we lift them up?
Black mothers in Georgia have been dealing with the risk of Black maternal and infant mortality, lack of Medicaid extended benefits and COVID-19; and in the midst of a pandemic mothers continue to see our children murdered in the streets. We cannot take the time to care for ourselves nor grieve because we are too busy trying to weather the ever so present storms of life that continue to weigh on us daily.
On Saturday, June 20th please, join SisterSong in honoring the mothers that have lost their children to state sanctioned violence. We will say and lift their names through ritual and ceremony. This ceremony will be to honor, uplift and protect the sanctity of Black Motherhood.
