What is Black?

Meet the Author That Captures the Joys and Challenges of Black Mothering (w/ Kelly Glass)

Episode Summary

Why is it so hard for Black mothers to show vulnerablity? Do you feel anxious raising black children? Theses are questions that many of us may have asked ourselves but have found it hard to answer or openly discuss with family and/or friends. Today's guest is Kelly Glass a writer whose interests focus on the intersections of parenting, mental health, race, and diversity. She's also the author of young adult racial literacy book Looking at Privilege and Power. Her work can be found in the Washington Post, Oxygen.com, HelloGiggles, Romper, and more. She's written two essays on these topics. During my conversation with Kelly, we'll learn about more about how she uses her writing to explore the joys and challenges of Black mothering, the vulnerablity of Black mothers, and Black mom anxiety. It's a great conversation and I think many moms will relate to the shared experiences.
