We’re often beaten to death with the same ol’ statistic: Seventy percent of black women are unmarried. Blah, blah, blah. And it always seems to pop up whenever there’s a discussion involving the words “single,” “black,” and “woman” regardless of the real topic. Well, we don’t want to hear it – especially single black mothers.
Confessions of a Single Black Mother is an eight-part YouTube series that serves as a platform for single moms to share their frustrations and stories of single motherhood including the stigma that surrounds it. It also aims to underline the effects of absenteeism and favoritism on the father’s part. And it allows for the men’s perspective with a few voicing their opinions and concerns.
