Over two decades ago, I married a childhood friend and created my greatest joys, our 5 beautiful biracial children. As a mother of biracial children, I am extremely active in making sure they know, love, and embrace their blackness. I am very open and honest with what being black means in society, especially for my 4 black sons. As a mama, I am driven by compassion, social justice, and radical love. Not just for my birth children, but for all children. Through the use of age-appropriate children’s books, honest dialogue, and a space for inquiry—asking the hard questions—my husband and I are raising globally-minded, empathetic and mindful children. I talk openly to my children about topics of race, politics, and current social injustices. We also dig into belonging and race identity. There is no topic that’s off limits. I try very hard not to engage in fear-based parenting, but instead use that fear to propel me to dig deeper into the principles of radical love!
