Programs & Events


Mama, have you found your tribe? Do you need support on your mothering journey?

Brown Mamas has been supporting and championing the Black mothering experience for over a decade.  Through community, content and events we seek to connect Black mothers to the people, experiences and spaces that help them raise happy, healthy adults and thrive beyond motherhood.  Below check out the many ways you can get involved and begin cultivating the tribe you need to thrive.


GrownMama Mentoring

A cross-generational approach to mama mentoring, we run a 12-week mommy matchmaking program that connects less experienced mothers with more experienced moms with the mission of helping moms build their village of support, grow and maintain their sense of emotional and mental wellness and developing a set of personal and parenting principles that can guide their mothering journey.


The Brown Mama Mindset

The Brown Mama Mindset Curriculum is purposed with helping Black moms do the work on their journey toward fulfilled emotional, mental and social wealth. From transforming their relationship with time, to examining their routines and understanding your male/female relationships, the Brown Mama Mindset takes moms on a Sankofa-focused quest to go back and fetch the version of themselves that they so often leave the moment they birth children.

Brown Mama Monologues

African-American mothers take the stage to tell their most vulnerable stories around black motherhood in America. Our moms leave all of their mom guilt, co-parenting woes, funny stories about childbirth and more right on the floor of the stage. Their stories we uplift our crowd with parent-centered comedic acts, uplifting and empowering performances and awards recognizing the local champions of Black motherhood right in their own backyards.
