Trina Greene Brown, Parenting for Liberation Founder and Executive Director, wrote a piece for the newly released Chicana Motherwork Anthology. This anthology is a call to action for justice. Contributions are both theoretical and epistemological, and they offer an understanding of motherwork through Chicana and Women of Color experiences.
Here’s a video of Trina reading a short passage of her writing:
More about Trina’s piece here:
Through personal storytelling of experiences as a Black feminist mama working in the women’s rights movement, this piece reflects on the inequities and hypocrisies of the feminist movement and motherhood. When the day-to-day work of a feminist is to ensure that women’s voices are heard, this Black feminist mama’s personal experiences of being invisibilized, silenced, and denied access to privileges, emboldens her to raise the question harkening upon the ancestral spirit of Sojourner Truth, “Ain’t I a Mama?”
The Invitation: Join Trina and six of her fellow contributors for a reading and discussion of the anthology on Friday April 12th from 11am-1pm at California State Dominguez Hill Loker Student Union Ballroom B. More details on the flyer.
