Moms Speaking Out on Racism
When George Floyd cried out for his momma with his dying breath, this momma heard him in my soul—every momma should. It’s time we all do something about it.
Four moms, two races, one question: “As a mother, what role are you playing in reshaping the race narrative going forward?”
So, grab a cup of coffee and some courage. Join us for this candid conversation. Because our children are crying out for help.
And it’s time we answer.
Many thanks to my guests:

Akeia Rossiter, associate pastor at Capital Christian Fellowship, Lanham, MD
Charlene Benjamin, of The Messy Sisterhood, for real women, living real lives, who need a real God, airing live Thursdays at 9AM EST

I listened today to this episode. It was powerful, practical, encouraging, hopeful, real and so much more. It made me tearful at points but ultimately left me feeling hopeful, and I desperately needed that. Thank you for doing such brave work and for bringing others to the table and doing so setting a tone for essential conversations. ~Anthea
