Celebrating Motherhood: At home with Jamilah and Naima

“I am so proud to work for a black company. I just want her to know that blackness is a good place to be. I’m from the South Side of Chicago, I went to Howard, I’m an AKA [Alpha Kappa Alpha], I work for Johnson Publishing Company, blackness is great. That’s why I gave my little black girl a black-girl name; I don’t make any apologies for that because her purpose in life is not to figure out how to be accepted or loved by other people, but to accept and love herself.”
