Top 10 Mommy and Minis of 2015
by Christina Dunn
Black Motherhood has a long history of being laced with struggle, unconditional love and protectiveness. All qualities with have stemmed deep from the separation of mother and child during slavery.
Through gains unmatched, we have lived through a generation where modern black motherhood is praised. The first African-American First Lady, Michelle Obama, is an educator, lawyer, advocate and most importantly a phenomenal mother. She is the reflection of all that a mother can be, hardworking and nurturing.
Black Mothers are the strength of the black family structure. Black Girl Fly recognizes that motherhood shouldn't only be celebrated on Mother's Day. Out of this premise evolved, Mommy and Mini Monday's--a social network campaign which provides a transformative and positive look on black motherhood and the black children they raise.
Mommy and Mini Monday (#MommyAndMiniMonday) is one of the highlights of BGF's weekly lineups on Instagram. We celebrate black motherhood by sharing fun content of numerous mothers and their children. The videos and pictures shed light on the dynamic lifestyle of being a mommy. Mommy duties, mini's reading books, mini play dates, lunch time and even nap time are all presented on Monday’s.
The mini's lighten up Instagram's timeline with bright smiles, natural fly (hair)-do’s, skips across the street and smeared ice cream faces. We can't forget the Mothers who raise them either. These strong resilient women aren't just mothers but also full time workers and of course stylish! The mommies featured are your everyday mom in your neighborhood, brand ambassador moms and even mommy fashion bloggers. It's safe to say that, mommy’s run the world!
