What Django Taught Me About Motherhood

What Django Taught Me About Motherhood

This is a personal piece that I wrote after viewing the movie Django Unchained. While that movie is NOT for children, I think it’s something that parents with a strong stomach should view eventually. I learned something very invaluable about motherhood after watching the film, and I share it with you in this article.

I hope these posts help you start your conversations about Black History Month, or encourage you to not just have this conversation in February, but all year round.

    Thank you for posting this but I wondered why you did not put any black women on here? I remember as a girl how much of a roll model Sojourner Truth was to me.

        As a white woman, I don’t think I would feel comfortable doing such. Maybe a women pioneers, which would include black women (which perhaps is something missing as well). Women don’t get included in black history as much as they deserve and non-white women don’t get included enough in women’s history month. May I throw you a line if I write one for feedback?
