INSTEAD OF MICHELLE AND STEPH DISCUSSING BLACK HISTORY MONTH WE KNEW IT WOULD BE BETTER TO HEAR FROM BLACK MOMS

In this episode, we have a special conversation with Niki from Memphis and Joi from Houston to discuss the realities of raising black kids in America in 2022. February is Black History Month, but every day we should recognize and celebrate the achievements of Black Americans.

We hope this conversation is enlightening and encouraging for all mothers. Once Black History Month ends, what is your plan to continue the conversation with Black mothers?

About Joi

JOI was born and raised in San Antonio. After a brief pit stop at the University of Texas in Austin, Joi moved to Houston in 1994 and began checking boxes off her never-ending to-do list. During this time and in no particular order, Joi taught a little bit of everything between first and eighth grades, got married and then divorced, completed grad school, birthed a few babies – Ferris {November 1997}, Warren {December 1999} and Laylah {March 2006}, moved an old lady into her home – Granny {January 1925} started working in Human Resources, served an excessive amount of time (on boards, in booster clubs, team momming) as a crazy sports momma, and learned a lot of life lessons. Joi is known for her unabashed honesty, always present sense of humor and her #TeamTooMuch style of doing everything. On most days, you can find her caught up in her love/hate relationship with politics, feeding her Facebook addiction, or counting the number of days until her last child graduates from high school.
