There are so many things about this journey to Costa Rica that have felt Divinely orchestrated. Finally meeting Valarie Kaur (who happens to be in C.R. on sabbatical writing her book Revolutionary Love) was truly one of them. We talked about art, film, howler monkeys and of course mothering! 🐒There are few leaders today capable of articulating the antidote for hate with such clarity and compassion. I’m so grateful for her poetic way of labouring for the liberation of our children. The process of making Mothering in the Movement has already been nourished deeply by her power and presence. If you haven’t already, watch Valarie’s “Darkness of the tomb/womb” speech or her latest TED talk and you’ll know. You’ll just know. ✊🏾❤️🙏🏾 #costarica #puravida #artistresidency #sweetlabour #revolutionarylove #motheringinthemovement #documentary #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #othermothers #motheractivist #valariekaur

Today I got to join Hamilton Family Health Team for a keynote focusing on intersectional #lgbtq healthcare. I drew a lot on my incredibly positive experience with midwives as examples of care that is patient centered and affirming. Beautiful crowd and really engaging questions. Then I rolled with my baby to visit my mom in Hamilton. She is experiencing a whole other end of the health system and it’s heartbreaking to draw on her experiences, and the increasing need for accessibility as our population ages. At the beginning and end of life, we are all incredibly vulnerable. I don’t believe people learn well through shame, and I strongly believe in connecting to communities of of practice as we share knowledge and grow. I speak from my lived experience to situate it all in the heart and tap into people’s empathy to confront our privilege and increase access for others. Keeping her close to my heart only makes that deeper. #bethechange #educator #6weekspostpartum #6weeksold #community #care #motheringinthemovement

When we remember to MOTHER THE MOTHER... “As a culture, we have woefully neglected the needs of new mothers. But this was not always so. Historically, we recognized the importance of a community of women helping women, who provided this much needed practical and emotional assistance.” (from an important piece by Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, Why Does Our Culture Focus So Much on Childbirth and So Little on The Time After?) * * #motheringinthemovement #motheringthemother #mothers #birthphotography #motherhood #blackmoms #doula #blackmotherhood #sisterhood #ittakesavillage #inkedmoms #blackmomsblog #revolutionarymothering #blackgirlmagic #blackgirljoy #documentaryfilm #docs #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #blackwomendirectors #directher #womenfilmmakers #maternaljustice

I marvel at the way mother artivists like dramatist @dbiyounganitafrika (sharing an excerpt from her play Once Upon a Black Boy), so powerfully communicate their wildest imaginings, their fiercest indictments, their deepest loves THROUGH ART. It truly is something to behold. ❤️✊🏾🙏🏾 #motheringinthemovement #documentaryfilm

What we’re up to over @motheringinthemovement Follow the film’s photographic journey 🙏🏾❤️ * * * Kim and Tiq, the moment your daughter emerged from one Universe to join us in this one was truly a moment that defies words. Bearing witness to your miracle left me breathlessly aware of the grace, the peace, the love that all our Holy Books speak of. I will never forget that moment or the teaching it held for me. I have never been more clear about what my film @motheringinthemovement is here to do. In the face of messaging that suggests otherwise, I want every Brown and Black child to understand not only how profoundly DESIRED they are. But they need to know how VITAL their presence is to our experience of God(dess). 🙏🏾❤️✊🏾 #revolutionarymothering

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.

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

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
