Love for Black Single Moms

You Are Enough


In 2022, there were approximately 4.15 million Black families in the US with a single mother. Black single mothers are often blamed for the problems in the Black Family and society. Yet, single moms are the ones providing for their children—not abandoning them. 

So, what's going on? In a collection of short essays, Dr. Chris will inform​ and enlighten you on what's the problem:

  1. Black single mothers live in a society that perpetuates violence and abuse against Black women.
  2. Is based on a system of social stratification. Social stratification is the way society categorizes people - race, class, gender, and motherhood. Black, working-class, single mothers are on the bottom half of the ladder or pyramid at the intersection of race (Black), class (working-class/low income), gender (female), and motherhood (single, unmarried mother). At the bottom of the pyramid, they have very little power, property, and privilege. To make matters worse, they often do not have the support they need. Finally, 
  3. Black single mothers live in a society that blames the victim. Society perpetuates violence and abuse against Black women, is built on a system of social stratification where working class Black single mothers are at the bottom of the pyramid, and she is the problem? Obviously not, so why blame her? Blaming her lets society off the hook from making systemic changes to level the playing field for Black women. It allows those at the top of the ladder (white, male, upper class) to maintain power and control and continue to refuse to spread the wealth to level the playing field. 


Black single mothers can begin to take back control of their lives by implementing the following steps: 

  • Show up for yourself
  • Know that you are enough
  • Heal your emotional wounds (all abuse and neglect leave an emotional wound)
  • Understand Attachment - It is all about attachment.
