My Sonshine, Landon, is the driving force for my involvement with Moms of Black Boys United. I love that MOBB United provides support on both a national and local level for not only my son but for me as well. The safe space to share my personal experiences as a "boy mom" with a diverse network of boy moms who understand the highs and lows of raising a black son in the world we live in today, and can offer advice based on their lived experiences or to simply be a listening ear is invaluable. I believe that we are stronger together, so I'm thankful to have been chosen to help bring this amazing organization to Mississippi. I'm excited about all of the "black boy joy" that will come from this new chapter.
