Motherhood. It is something that most women want to experience at some point in their life.  The older we get, the more that desire deepens. Unfortunately for most women, the prospect of finding a decent man to procreate with is very slim. Dating in 2019 is a national crisis, leaving many smart, educated women of color wondering if they will enjoy the journey of motherhood.

This week, I have the pleasure of speaking with Nefertiti Austin, author of the recently published book "Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender and Parenting in America." In this book, Nefertiti examines adoption and child-rearing as a single black woman confronting gender and racial bias.

I know that in this stage of the game, many of you are considering motherhood but are feeling discouraged because you are single and believe that you cannot possibly do it on your own. This episode is for you! Tune in to hear how Nefertiti embarked on her journey to motherhood as a working, educated, single, black, women, with perfectly good eggs.
