“For a long time Black British mothers were invisible – we weren't in the adverts for nappies or follow-on milk, we weren't in the parenting magazines or modelling maternity wear on the high street. Our experiences only existed in private conversations. Black Ballad’s takeover of HuffPost UK is a weeklong focus on parenting and family, wholly commissioned and edited by Black British women. It amplifies the voices and experiences of Black mothers living in Britain today, not only highlighting the struggles, but also the hopes and visions we have for a future that is more just and equitable for all."
