Mother and Daughter Resisting Love

Black Mothers Struggle to Express Love

Black mothers, not all but many, have struggled for generations to show love openly to their daughters. When us daughters speak of our mothers, we always seem to justify the absence of this seemingly simple gesture of affection by saying they were just trying to survive. We say they had a lot on their plates, especially with a husband and other children. Perhaps some of us have even said that they were learning to mother during a time where drugs were being pushed into their communities.
