Moms of Black Boys (MO.B.B.) United, Inc. is a movement of concerned mothers who aim to make a difference in how Black boys and men are perceived and treated by law enforcement and in society. We represent every race, age, socioeconomic background, marital status and education level. What we share is unconditional love for our Black sons, and we want others to see them through our proud eyes. We have seen them enter the world innocently, take first steps, learn about love, and experience disappointments and pain. Just like all moms, we want our SUNS to have a chance to live, learn and leave their legacies. United, we will!
M.O.B.B. United provides information and support for moms of Black sons and works to promote positive images of Black boys and men. The organization is dedicated to changing perception and fostering understanding of the plight of Black boys and men in America by telling their stories, celebrating their accomplishments and connecting them to opportunities.
The organization serves as a support group for moms of Black sons by encouraging strong family and community connections and promoting self-care. The group supports moms by sharing information that empowers them to navigate all of the institutions that interact with, influence and impact our sons.
Founder Depelsha Thomas McGruder -- a mother of two Black sons -- started M.OB.B. United as a friendly Facebook support group in July 2016. Since then, the movement has grown tremendously, along with our motivation to protect our sons and their future.
