On April’s episode of PrepTalks, Ned speaks with Nefertiti Austin, author of Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender, and Parenting in America. Ned and Nefertiti talk about her journey, as a single African American woman, to adopt a Black son out of the foster care system. Along the way, she found out how deeply American culture sees motherhood through a white lens, discovered how to navigate the bureaucracies and cultural assumptions around adoption, and learned a great deal about intergenerational healing from trauma.
