Diversifying the American motherhood narrative
The Brown Mama Monologues is an annual showcase of African-American mothers telling unique stories about the trials and triumphs of Black motherhood in America. Our show amplifies the voices and lived experiences of Black mothers and adds diversity, depth and variety to the overall American motherhood narrative.
In 2021, we hosted two live-streamed showcases with a captive audience of over 600 live attendees. Our May showcase featured moms from Pittsburgh and our December showcase chronicled the stories of moms from the DC Metro and NYC regions.
We are excited to showcase 6 more moms in 2022 with in-person and virtual performances. Our in-person showcase will take place Saturday, May 28th at Emerald City Pittsburgh located at 213 Smithfield Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. The virtual showcase will take place Wednesday, June 8th via Crowdcast.
