I started BrownMamas.com back in 2012 on a mission to prove something I already knew:
Black Moms are Excellent Moms.
I was tired of waiting for a newscaster, awards program or magazine to say what my mother taught me through her daily actions. That’s how Brown Mamas was born. In 2012, I started highlighting Black moms in the #GoodMama Campaign. (A monthly blog post that reports on Black mothers who are excelling at raising and rearing their children.) Now, Pittsburgh Brown Mamas is a dynamic support group for Black moms in the Pittsburgh region. We get together monthly to support each other in our motherhood journeys.
In addition to being the online landing page for Pittsburgh Brown Mamas, I blog about raising and homeschooling my 3 sons, loving my husband, living a family-first lifestyle in the nation’s most livable city (Pittsburgh) and empowering other Black moms to enjoy motherhood. The work I do has been featured in local media as well.
Brown Mamas’ boast nearly 10K pageviews per month and a collective following of over 10,000 readers via social media and email. Through Brown Mamas, I’ve worked with companies like IKEA, Giant Eagle, Chick-fil-a, Groupon and JCPenney.
Most importantly, Brown Mamas has become the premier site for reaching African-American mothers in the Pittsburgh region.
