We are so excited about building our Patreon community.  We believe this is an avenue to build sustainable platforms that allows artists to have more creative freedom.  Our content centers Black people, Black women in particularly, therefore we want you to be the people we are accountable to.  We want you to be our investors and supporters.  We wanna be #BlackMamaBuilt. 

Dem Black Mamas is more than a podcast.  When you invest in Dem Black Mamas you are investing in Black women who are committed to and actively building spaces that offer innovative theory and healing that will put Black people on the path to as Thea Monyee says "living free this lifetime. Do it for the ancestors."  You are investing in #BlackMamaCreatives who believe as Crystal Tennille Irby says "motherhood is not the graveyard of our dreams." You are investing in women who are navigating motherhood as a space of infinite creativity and inspiration.  You are investing in women who are committed to helping other Black mamas unleash their creative dreams because as NeKisha Killings says "the world is waiting for whatever creative idea being held hostage to be released."
