Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender, and Parenting in America ~ by Nefertiti Austin


A story every mother needs to read.

All moms have to deal with choosing baby names, potty training, finding your village, and answering your kid's tough questions, but if you are raising a Black child, you have to deal with a lot more than that.

Especially if you're a single Black mom... and adopting.

Nefertiti Austin shares her story of starting a family through adoption as a single Black woman.

In this unflinching account of her parenting journey, Nefertiti examines the history of adoption in the African American community, faces off against stereotypes of single Black moms, and confronts the reality of what it looks like to raise children of color, and answer their questions about racism in modern-day America.
