Description

Product Description

The story every mother in America needs to read. As featured on NPR and the TODAY Show. All moms have to deal with choosing baby names, potty training, finding your village, and answering your kid''s tough questions, but if you are raising a Black child, you have to deal with a lot more than that. Especially if you''re a single Black mom... and adopting.

Nefertiti Austin shares her story of starting a family through adoption as a single Black woman. In this unflinching account of her parenting journey, Nefertiti examines the history of adoption in the African American community, faces off against stereotypes of single Black moms, and confronts the reality of what it looks like to raise children of color and answer their questions about racism in modern-day America.

Honest, vulnerable, and uplifting, Motherhood So White is a fantastic book for mothers who have read White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo, Stamped from the Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi, Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Daniel Tatum, or other books about racism and want to see how these social issues play out in a very personal way for a single mom and her Black son.

This great book club read explores social and cultural bias, gives a new perspective on a familiar experience, and sparks meaningful conversations about what it looks like for Black families in white America today.

Review

" Motherhood So White blew me away. Nefertiti''s honest account of her unique journey to parenthood serves as a sharp reminder that in our society, parenting is not a colorblind experience. This is an important book for anyone committed to creating a more equal playing field for all our children." - KJ Dell,Antonia, author of How to Be a Happier Parent

"Austin''s frank voice and determined spirit speak truth to the media powers that present #MotherhoodSoWhite, while relaying her history and thoughtful parenting decisions... a needed and important contribution." - Meg Lemke, Editor-in-Chief of MUTHA

"Austin captures both the love and fear of her parenting experience in this powerful, spirited narrative." - Publishers Weekly

"Austin challenges readers to question the ideal of motherhood as being synonymous with whiteness. Along the way, within the adoption system and the broader community...she tackles the inherent sexism, classism, and racism wn essential addition to the literature about adoption, reflecting a viewpoint that is sorely lacking. " - Kirkus Reviews

"Eye-opening, trenchant book, which helps to bolster the scant literature for African American adoptive parents that Austin has pioneered by blogging for publications such as MUTHA magazine and the Huffington Post...Austin''s experiences, both positive and negative, are recounted in this fast-paced, heartwarming memoir of motherhood and adoption told through an African American lens." - Library Journal-STARRED review

"A moving and necessary corrective to the primarily white narrative on adoption." - Booklist

" Motherhood So White is a testament to the power of love as a radical act and an urgent call to reclaim motherhood from institutionalized whiteness." - BookPage

"Both informational and inspiring, and is a much-needed addition to the literature of motherhood." - BookRiot

In America, Motherhood = White.

"I spent a long time looking for representation in parenting, and this book is in your hands because one woman seeking to be a mother was looking for answers. I thought information for mothers would be race-neutral but it wasn''t. Coming up empty-handed in my search for information about Black mothers forced me to reconcile how other single, non-rich, Black women achieved motherhood." Nefertiti Austin

Nefertiti shared with us her experiences filled with challenges growing up that no doubt impacted her decision on how she would choose to become a parent. She discussed a few key factors that contribute to the cloudy lens through which Black Motherhood is viewed.

Very insightful, taking the reader along on her journey, giving first hand accounts of the adoption process or should I say, the Black experience into becoming a mother, the myths and misperceptions that surrounds it. Nefertiti does a great job at deconstructing this bias in her memoir:hoping to erase the stereotypes of this very uneven playing field within Black Motherhood.

The author would also include historical and evidenced based facts related to the separation of the enslaved Black families that continue to plague the cohesiveness of Black families to this day.

Her memoir is her passionate journey to achieving a forever family via adoption, where she selflessly contributed to the very sparse genre of books that weren''t readily available to Black mothers seeking to adopt.

I leave you with this question...
What are some of the ways you can continue to break down barriers, deconstruct biases and demystify false notions regarding Black Motherhood?

A great memoir. Austin speaks on so much of what many black mothers and other races raising black sons experience and feel. She also sheds light on adoption through the foster system which is attached to a particular stereotype of black women and children. We of all races can all speak on diversity and promote it, but do we really understand what the issues are? Within our own communities and within the communities of others? I highly recommend Motherhood So White as a start

Anyway you become a mother is beautiful and the experiences in life prior to becoming a mother are what make you and break you. Nefertiti did an amazing job sharing a hard story to show how beautiful life can be. While reading her story, my eyes were opened to privileges I have as a single white foster/adoptive mother. I learned about black culture and adoption from this book and how those stereotypes can be broken. I also enjoyed the interviews that Nefertiti put at the end of the story.
