by Trina Greene Brown
In 2016, activist and mother Trina Greene Brown created the virtual multimedia platform Parenting for Liberation to connect, inspire, and uplift Black parents. In this book, she pairs personal anecdotes with open-ended reflective prompts; together, they help readers dismantle harmful narratives about the Black family and imagine anti-oppressive parenting methods.
"Trina Greene Brown has created a guide for Black parents who want to raise fierce, fearless, joyful children. She knows what a challenge this is given the state of the world but argues that liberated parenting is possible if we commit to knowing and trusting ourselves, our children, and our communities. Anyone curious about how to walk with a child through tumultuous times needs to read this book now." --Dani McClain, author of We Live for the We: The Political Power of Black Motherhood
"As a 'woke' Black mom, I've been on a never-ending quest to find a book that would enable me to shift my parenting lens from one based on trauma to one of freedom and joy. Trina Greene-Brown has written that book!" --A. Rochaun Meadows-Fernandez, writer for "On Parenting," Washington Post
