the beginning…motherhood in the 3rd ward

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A day before the Exposure: Houston/Aftermath workshop began, I switched my topic to the experience of motherhood in the Third Ward, particularly single mothers and the dominance of female-headed households within the Black community. Questions I would ask: how did you feel like when you first discovered you were pregnant? How did (does) poverty affect your self-esteem or self-image? How did other people’s expectations of you change after you became pregnant/a mother? What do you think is the role of women in the Black community?
