“My name means happiness" -Ligaya (Carlisa’s mom)

“You know you’re doing your job when the kids wake up with a smile. When they bring you joy.” -Crystalz with son Jameir * * * #motheringinthemovement #mothering #blackmoms #blackmothers #revolutionarymothering #docfilms #documentary #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #directher #blackboyjoy #blacksons #blackboy #brooklyn #bedstuy @mobbunited @blackmomsblog

It may take a village to raise a child, but how many moms feel like they’re sometimes raising of a village? Crystalz picks up her 2 (glasses and face paint)+4 at their summer camp drop off last July in Brooklyn. * * * #motheringinthemovement #mothering #blackmoms #blackmothers #mothersaretherevolution #revolutionarymothering #docfilm #docs #documentary #indevelopment #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #directher #blackwomendirectors #bk #brooklyn #bedstuy #latergram

Each year, on the first day of school, I share with my students a metaphor for emotional safety in the classroom. I describe for them one of my favourite childhood memories of being at a theme park and experiencing what came to represent for me THE epitome of joy– the BOUNCY CASTLE! * * * I explain that in the bouncy castle (like the enclosed trampoline pictured above) you are free to experiment with movement, take risks you would never consider taking on pavement, challenge yourself and your peers in playfulness not competition. In a bouncy castle, you don’t mind being pushed by a friend because you know that the act comes with the wish for you to experience something novel, something exhilarating. And even as you try to recover your balance, breathlessly you plead, “PUSH ME AGAIN!” * * * The metaphor appeals to the imaginations of my young students by asking them to consider how their lives might change if they knew they had a SOFT PLACE TO LAND. * * * And while little Black girls and boys are busy imagining the heroics they will perform in life, M/others of the Movement are busy dismantling systems as rigid as concrete so that their children might only know soft landings. Bless them. 🙏🏾❤️🙌🏾 * * * #motheringinthemovement #motherhood #mothering #mothersaretherevolution #revolutionarymothering #motherslove #documentaryfilm #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #directher #blackwriters #documentaries #bwphoto #blackgirlmagic #blackchildhood #childhood @matermea @blackmomsblog @blackmomsconnection @blackgirlsrock

TW: intergenerational trauma discussed * * Intergenerational trauma is real. We don't need studies to understand that pain knows no bounds. It's not a stretch to grasp that the nutrient-rich blood we shared with our mothers contained the residue of her traumas. Oftentimes, our mothers are too close to the edge of that pain to help us appreciate the possibility of healing. Grandmothers however, one generation removed (yet wholly present), are beautifully positioned to help guide us. They gently pull us back from the precipice of pain and teach us how to see with new eyes. A dark chasm bridged by a grandmother's love. Her alchemical methodologies transforming past hurts into joy. * * This is what most excites me about making this film. I get to bear witness to the many ways mothers, grandmothers, and all those who mother transform lives, subvert systems of oppression, perform miracles, promote healing, instil joy. * * #motheringinthemovement #mothering #grandmother #granddaughters #grandmothering #mothers #mothersaretherevolution #revolutionarymothering #documentaryfilm #docs #nfb #community #blackmoms #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #womendirectors #directher #blacklivesmatter #blackmomsmatter #blacklove

Sometimes you can actually see the cosmic threads that connect a mother to her child. Here that special bond is made manifest in a palpable moment of unbridled joy. #bellylaughs #mothering #motheringinthemovement #documentary #docfilm #nfb #canadianfilm #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #revolutionarymothering #legacy #intergenerational #ourstories #storytelling #blacklove #blackmothers #blackjoy

Celebrate tiny miracles like making a photo (hate the word “capturing”) where two toddlers are looking at the camera at the same time! 😂 👶🏾👶🏾 📸 It’s ironic that daddy, Ase got cut out of the frame considering how active these boys were. * * Thank you mama Shen for sharing what it’s like to be a mom to two Black boys. Our conversation reminded me that the EMOTIONAL LIVES OF BLACK BOYS are perennially misunderstood. To be a community that mothers Black boys in revolutionary ways we must come to some SACRED AGREEMENTS * * 1) We must agree to SEE your boys as children, not mini adults (I don’t use “Little man” anymore with my young black students) * * 2) We agree to HONOUR their uniqueness and CELEBRATE their energy. * * 3) We must commit to nurturing their CAREFREE spirits while CARING for them spiritually, emotionally and physically. * * 4) We agree that they are tiny MIRACLES. We commit to creating a world that NEVER FORGETS that. * * #motheringinthemovement #mothersaretherevolution #familyvalues #blackfamily #raisingblackboys #blackboyjoy #blackboys #documentary #blackwomeninfilm #directher #womeninfilm

Whether the “conversation” is a silent tongue-lashing or a tender checking in like the one pictured, there is something so beautiful (not to mention revolutionary) about the wordless language developed between a Black mother and her child. * * * My science nerd theory is that in the face of persistent anti-Black racism, MOC have had to develop this sophisticated communication skill as an evolutionary imperative #survivalofthefittest #mothering #motheringinthemovement #revolutionarymothering #blackmomsblog #blackmothers #motherhood #documentaryfilm #blackwomendirectors #blackwomeninfilm #directher #nfb #docs #blackgirlmagic #blackhair

Imagine if every time a Black child looked at a piece of art, they were reminded that each of their lives is as deliberate and purpose-full as a brushstroke of a masterpiece ✨ 🎨✊🏾 * * * Met this sweet family this past summer at the “We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women 1965-1985” exhibit.

My mom always managed to pull herself and her home together for the holidays. My brothers and I certainly knew that we didn’t “have it”. We knew that we lived in subsidized housing, and that gifts like that Donkey Kong JR tabletop video game (pic # 3) were well beyond mom’s financial reach. * * * As an adult, I suppose my ambivalence around the holidays stems from negotiating this tenuous space between scarcity and abundance...a space my mom managed to adorn and beautify at least once a year. #revolutionarymothering #motheringinthemovement #mothers #motherhood #christmas #christmasmemories #growingupblack #singlemothers #motherslove #docfilm #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #documentary #blackwomendirectors #directher

#repost @motheringinthemovement ・・・ My recent visit with first-time mother-to-be @kimkatrinmilan reminded me that the Revolution in the name of a Black child begins way before that child's medical team makes a potentially life-threatening decision about their mom's postnatal care based on racial bias (Black women are 3-4x more likely to die of pregnancy-related complications than White women). * * The revolution begins before that child enters kindergarten to learn that their teacher's tendency to more closely monitor Black kids contributes to Black preschoolers being 3.6 x more likely to receive one or more suspensions relative to White kids (Yale study 2016) * * The revolution begins way before that child enters high school to encounter lower academic expectations or to be streamed into Applied courses 2x more than their peers from other racial backgrounds (York U 2017) * * It begins before that child is stopped and frisked by police with little to no anti-bias training, unlawfully carded, threatened or worse... * * Mothers in Movement are engaged in the work of conceiving and imagining a more just world while literally birthing our potential as a people. Their work is nothing short of revolutionary ✊🏾❤️🙏🏾#shesgotthewholeworldinherhands #mothering #motheringinthemovement #revolutionarymothering #revolutionarymothers #indiefilm #documentary #documentaryfilm #documentaryfilmmaking #nfb #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #blackwomenfilmmakers #blackmoms #blackmothers #pregnancy #blackjoy #blackgirlmagic #blackboymagic

Skeptics worry that a radical or hyper-politicized mother equates to children burdened by the weight of grownup issues. This couldn't be further from the truth for my moms/children of the Movement. The awareness and constant vigilance activist-mothers have around the injustices of the world are heightened when in the presence of their children - particularly at play. Mothers of the Movement use PRESENCE like a magic spell, casting out darkness, bringing the NOW into (Technicolor) focus for their kids. What an honour to bear WITHness to these sacred moments 🙏🏾❤️✊🏾🎨 * * * #motheringinthemovement #mothering #grandmother #granddaughters #grandmothering #mothers #mothersaretherevolution #revolutionarymothering #documentaryfilm #docs #nfb #community #blackmoms #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #womendirectors #directher #blacklivesmatter #blackmomsmatter #blacklove #childhood #blackjoy #blackgirl #blackgirlmagic

On World Teachers Day let's honour the moms who choose to homeschool or "unschool" their children as a way of challenging hegemonic models of education that often do more damage than good - particular to kids of colour * * Mothers who engage in the tough conversations about identity, race, politics...those who take their kids to places like the African Burial Ground in Manhattan are actively subverting institutional mandates built around notions of assimilation and cultural homogeneity. To teach - to truly teach is to traverse the difficult terrain of our pained history alongside our children, providing context and encouraging critical thought. This is indeed an act of love. It's also a radical act of resistance. #mothering #motheringinthemovement #motheringinthemovementfilm #documentaryfilm #docs #nfb #researchmode #womeninfilm #blackfilm #blackwomeninfilm #directher #community #mothersaretherevolution #revolutionarymothers #homeschooling #unschooling @fareofthefreechild

Experienced authentic community in my first ever Brooklyn Block Party several weeks ago! Tompkins street was literally vibrating with bodies, bass, and babies. Ironically, the street was closed off by police barricades, making it completely safe, if even just for an evening, for hundreds of kids to run around and BE...playful, Black, carefree. With each urgent, unapologetically deafening cry for justice, mothers in the Movement are pursuing THIS. A world for their kids where police presence does not equal death. A world where water from a fire hydrant need not indicate that poor people are burning in a highrise. A world where little Black girls and boys can be playing in the streets on a hot summer's day knowing that their parents and caregivers are nearby, keeping watch from their front stoops. * * * "cause the revolution is not about self-defense, it's about self-creation, it's about seeing farther than the walls directly in front of us" - Cynthia Dewi Oka (Revolutionary Mothering anthology, 2016) #motheringinthemovement #documentaryfilm #docs #mothers #mothering #community #brooklyn #blockparty #brooklynsummers #womeninfilm #womendirectors #blackmoms #blackwomeninfilm #blackbabies #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlhairstyles #ourstories #revolutionarylove #revolutionaries #mothersaretherevolution #bedstuy #ittakesavillage #revolutionarymothering #mmfanpics

VIGILANCE, Latin for 'to keep awake', lies at the heart of mothering. Indeed, for most species mothering without persistent watchfulness is not mothering at all. As I move deeper into the topic of mothering as a revolutionary practice, I'm learning that activist-moms, whether single or partnered, deliberately form communities of women (VIGILANTES?) around their children to help KEEP WATCH. Chosen aunties, sisters, and cousins play an essential role in keeping vigil and responding to both dangers and opportunities for growth. Single mom, Umay with youngest daughter Omolara, says this about her network of women, "I couldn't do this without the them. These little (mothering) communities are like little revolutions." #motheringinthemovement #mothering #moms #revolutionaries #vigilante #squad #momsquad #mothersaretherevolution #activism #activistmoms #activist #brooklyn #shareourstories #community #chosenfamily #ittakesavillage #documentaryfilm #documentary #docs #nfb #womeninfilm #womendirectors #blackwomeninfilm #motheringmatters #mmfanpics

Following the 2015 Paris attacks, a kid in Maryam's 5th grade class made a remark about "most Muslims being terrorists". Maryam's teacher responded by saying a terrorist could be anyone. Not the perfect response...but it was kinda what Maryam wanted to say. This incident was documented in an NPR interview with Maryam and her mother, Maya (Muslim Parenting in an Age of Terror). It got me thinking about the work that goes into preparing a Black, Brown, Indigenous child to confront ignorance on the streets -yes, but particularly in the classroom where young people often look to teachers and text books for validation of their beliefs. Is it ever too early to start preparing our children for these moments where they have to raise a hand in front of their peers and teachers to say something no one else is prepared to say? Most of the mothers I've met would say there's no choice in the matter. The risk that their child may be isolated, traumatized or worse by sanctioned ignorance is a risk they're not willing to take. #motheringinthemovement #mothers #mom #mothersanddaughters #documentaryfilm #director #blackwomen #blackwomendirectors #directormode #docs #documentary #nfb #npr #brooklyn #brooklynmoms #muslimfamily #bedstuy #revolutionaries #revolutionarylove #momactivist #blackwomeninfilm #womeninfilm #mmfanpics #directher #streetphotography

Phyllis, Annemarie & Shanice. Three generations here, existing, mattering, and revered. I marvel at the subtle persistence of motherhood. How a child, no matter how grown, still looks like a child when her mother is near. The presence of a mother or mothering figure in one's life reminds us that we can be vulnerable AND loved. We can be "bad" AND loved. We can be confused AND loved. We can be angry AND loved. A child who grows up knowing that she can be exactly who she is AND still receive the unrelenting embrace of her mother, is a child prepared to confront with power and dignity the agents of oppression put in place to destroy that bond (read: capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, poverty...) Indeed, "it is a radical act to nurture the lives of those who are not supposed to exist" -Loretta J Ross (Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines) #motheringinthemovement #mothers #moms #revolutionaries #docs #nfb #documentary #documentaryfilm #directormode #researchmode #womendirectors #womeninfilm #blackwomen #blackmothers #blackwomeninfilm #harlem #taketheatrain #supportmothers #mothersaretherevolution #motheringmatters #carefreeblackgirl #carefreeblackboy #blackgirlmagic #melaninmagic #mmfanpics

Moms, Lauren (black dress) and Dezi are fiercely and passionately workin' double time as moms to twins, Dries & Henrik, Kamarley & Zidanie respectively. When asked about activism and mothering, here's what Lauren had to say, "After 7 years of being a mom, I'm newly embracing the term "activist". Being an activist is about taking action...it's a proactiveness about being sensitive. A proactiveness about (teaching) compassion. I'll know I'm a success when someone says (my boys) are compassionate and thoughtful." I am humbled by the moms on the street willing to share with me, the joys and challenges of raising carefree Brown and Black children amidst sociopolitical forces designed to negate and/or erase their significance. Honoured to be in a position to explore mothering and activism as they commingle and intersect. Stay tuned for more mothering wisdom from the streets of Brooklyn 📸Laurie Townshend #motheringinthemovement #documentaryfilm #mothers #moms #mothering #brooklyn #streetphotography #indiefilm #theprocess #womendirectors #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #blackwomen #activist #activistmoms #activism #carefreeblackgirl #carefreeblackboy #wakework #bedstuy #nfb #ourstories #blackjoy #mmfanpics

"Mothering in the Movement" film was conceived from a simple desire to document the undervalued work of women (particularly mothers and those who mother) at the centre of social justice movements. It has blossomed into a film that yearns to do so much more. Mothering has taken on a life of its own and like any new creation, it will stretch, expand, and take up space. It will challenge, interrogate, and move its viewers to consider the implications of ideologies and practices that don't centre women and children. I no longer have any control over the life force of this film. All I can do is trust my instincts and act as a midwife to the creative process. I wouldn't want it any other way. {📷 @quazimottoonwx } * * * #motheringinthemovement #mothering #mothers #mothersaretherevolution #revolutionarymothers #community #momlife #moms #activists #motherhood #momactivist #motheractivist #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #blackwomen #tattoos #sistaink #blackink #blackmoms #indiefilm #nfb #documentaryfilm #docs #blackwomendirectors #solongsummer #backtoschool #teacherfilmmaker #brooklyn #brooklynphotographer

I had a conversation today with the formidable Lurie Daniel Favors (look her up) about mothering in times and spaces of resistance. When asked whether it's too much of a burden for children to be taught about the horrors of our past, she reminded me of the importance of CONTEXT. If you're not sure how context supports a child's enculturation/education, ask yourself if you've ever met a Jewish young person who didn't know about the Holocaust. * * Mothers who engage in the tough conversations about identity, race, politics...those who take their kids to places like the African Burial Ground in Manhattan are actively subverting institutional mandates built around notions of assimilation and cultural homogeneity.
