042 Can You Relate? with Beatriz Rodrigues

June 17, 2020

Listen in as Michelle and Beatriz Rodriquez discuss her birth experience and motherhood as an Afro-Latino woman. Together they discuss myths black mothers face, systemic racism, parenting multiracial daughters, working on our own biases, and the importance of compassionate listening.

“Everyone’s  experience as a black  woman is very different. But there are a few things that I feel that all black women, right now in this moment, feel and are in solidarity, especially when it comes to being mothers. One of things that I can say is that a lot of us, no matter how used to we are of being through trials and tribulations, I would say, ‘We’re scared and we’re disappointed. And, we wonder what the future holds for our children.’”—Beatriz Rodrigues
