Our Moms. Redefining Motherhood with Ourstory

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 our first virtual showcase live streamed from Pittsburgh, on December 29, 2021 we will live stream our first DC metro show with 6 moms representing the DMV region. 

Our showcase will still include the same captivating stories, performing artist and our annual Mommy Awards.  

The Speakers

As of 2021, 46 women have participated in the Brown Mama Monologues showcase.  Our show has tackled tough issues like abortion and single motherhood, and has shown the lighter side of Black momlife with stories on adoption and raising vegan kids.  The Brown Mama Monologues sets out to prove that Black mothers are not a monolith and that our stories are just as vast and varied as the Black experience in America.  Overall, our goal is to celebrate the voyage of mothering-in-color, while dismantling the negative stereotypes that often plague Black women.
