NEFERTITI AUSTIN ON PBS:  Teaching Your Child About Black History




ABOUT MOTHERHOOD SO WHITE:

Motherhood So White: In America, Mother = White. That's what Nefertiti, a single African American woman, discovered when she decided she wanted to adopt a Black baby boy out of the foster care system. Eager to finally join the motherhood ranks, Nefertiti was shocked when people started asking her why she wanted to adopt a "crack baby" or said that she would never be able to raise a Black son on her own. She realized that American society saw motherhood through a white lens, and that there would be no easy understanding or acceptance of the kind of family she hoped to build.



 




 
 


ABOUT:

Author and memoirist, Nefertiti Austin writes about the erasure of diverse voices in motherhood in Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender and Parenting in America. Her work around this topic has been short-listed for literary awards and appeared in the "Washington Post", “Huffington Post”, MUTHA, “The Establishment”, matermea.comEssence.com, “Adoptive Families” magazine, PBS SoCal’s “To Foster Change” and PBS Parents. She was the subject of an article on race and adoption in “The Atlantic” and appeared on “HuffPost Live” and “One Bad Mother”, where she shared her journey to adoption as a single Black woman. Nefertiti’s expertise stems from firsthand experience and degrees in U.S. History and African-American Studies. Nefertiti is a former Certified PS-MAPP Trainer, where she co-led classes for participants wanting to attain a license to foster and/or adopt children from foster care system. An alumna of Breadloaf Writers’ Conference and VONA, her first two novels, Eternity and Abandon, helped usher in the Black Romance genre in the mid-1990s.
