Mocha Single Mothers by Choice (SMCs)
By Aisha and Hera, The Mocha SMCs
We are two, Black Single Mothers who made the decision to have and raise our children on our own. We met as admins for a Facebook group called Mocha SMC.This group is an unapologetically Black space for Black women to discuss the trials, tribulations, and joys of this non-traditional path to motherhood. There are several SMC social media groups and forums – some focused on trying to have a child and others on parenting those children. But after spending time in those spaces, we realized there was a need to have a safe space for us to discuss these issues through the intersectional lens of being Black SMCs.
