This space is called Black Seedling, simply because our black children are blessings that need to be fertilized with affirmation, self-appreciation, and self-respect in a safe environment to grow.
It is a space, community or village and not a personal blog for only me to share my parenting journey. I would like it to feel like a group of like-minded folks sitting in a room helping and learning from each other. It is a community because I believe in the village approach to raising children. It is a community because I’m not arrogant enough to pretend I have all of the answers. It’s a community because we need to learn from others who are living this duality. This community will be a place where we can exist without explanation. It will be a place where we can share resources, questions, concerns, and tips.
