Mothering Through Pain and Suffering in Silence
In these pages you will be immersed in the lives of several astonishing Black wombmen who are the descendants of enslaved Africans in the Americas. These wombmen share heart wrenching stories of how they have grappled vigorously with the unforgiving circumstances they are confronted with as mothering is juxtaposed with their Black bodies while living in America. Seen in this way, living in this peculiar nation, given the inherently flawed foundation that has been paved by systemic racism, has created a vicious cycle of destruction for the Black wombman, and many fail to talk about in great detail. In this book, the contributing authors will be referred to as Black wombmen to give honor to the divine position we hold on this planet being the first Mothers of Civilization whose wombs bring forth life alongside the Creator.

Understanding the divine essence of the Black wombman is extremely important for the sustainability of our future generations. Come and take this journey with us and learn how Black wombmen struggle to mother through pain while being superwoman.
