The M.O.B.B. Movement
The M.O.B.B. Movement was created as a result of the founder's determination to positively embrace being the mother of two brown boys in a society where they are often devalued, misunderstood, and misrepresented.
As Mothers of Brown Boys, we experience a love and a fear at the same time. When they walk out the front door, we experience different emotions. We are happy to see them fly because we know they are amazing yet we fear that they will be judged, racially profiled, and mistreated at the same time. We trust in God and lean on our faith.
Whether a single mother or a married mother, the love and fear that we all experience is often times the same. Therefore, we acknowledge the movement because as much as we may feel the fear and love we are STRONG!
The crown in the logo represents the King inside of every brown boy (son) that we as M.O.B.B.'s gave birth to. We acknowledge that it takes a village to raise a brown boy into a king.
This crown reminds us and the world that inside of every brown boy is a KING!
