We will explore the principles, values, beliefs, traditions, and cultural practices that have been passed on from generation to generation of Black women by our mothers.
We will engage in a process of sharing and reflection using conversation and the creative arts. Treat yourself (your daughter, mother, grandmother, auntie …) to a weekend dedicated to re-membering, preserving, and celebrating the wisdom of mothers.
Listen, learn, and speak from the heart about breaking through the divides created by societal pressures. And share strategies for strengthening relationships in your community and in your home.
