Natasha is a former interior architect, who is raising her children with her husband in Nebraska. She currently has a daughter, Ayvrie and is expecting her second babe this month! We love following her for her honest perspective on motherhood, seeing how much she cares for the community of mamas & how intentional she is in creating a safe space for her followers.
What do you wish other mamas knew about your experience as a black mama in america?
That unlike other children mine don’t have the privilege of a normal childhood. I have to teach her the harsh realities of this world early in order to protect her from those who would harm her for simply being different.
What do you wish every mama would teach their children about black history?
That black history is American history and to deny it is to deny a piece of what makes this country great. I’m tired of the narrative that non people of color don’t need to know black history as if we aren’t a huge part of what built and continues to build this country.
What is a real life mama moment you have had recently?
That being mama doesn’t mean I have to do it all. I’ve reached that point in my second pregnancy where I just can’t do it all. It’s okay to ask for help, it doesn’t make you any less of a mother.
