Crazy & Brave: Experiences of Black Mothers
Audience: Adults
Description: Though efforts have been made to increase the potential for academic and social success of African American males, little has been done to support the women who raise these boys and young men. Amidst community violence, racial profiling, academic and social marginalization, African American mothers strive to secure a better, safer future for their children. This presentation will guide discussion on the mental and physical health of Black mothers as they navigate socio-political environments in the US.
