It’s a truth that one sees while strolling down countless streets, but one that is rarely reflected online. And that’s where Mater Mea comes in — this site is a celebration of the multifaceted lives of mothers of color.


We hope you see a little bit of yourself in the Mater Mea moms who have let us into their most intimate setting: at home, with their children.” –Mater Mea 

 

To all the beautiful Mothers, including the ones very dear to my heart, my own Mother and Nikisha, here is a special montage dedicated to all of you. If you have not had a chance to get to know Mater Mea, then this will definitely awe and inspire…Happy Mother’s Day.
