Enjoyed this

When I listened to the story it resonated with my soul having experienced the loss of my mother. As the story unfolded I felt uplifted and encouraged by the familiar tone of the ‘Black mother experience’ that uprights you for the journey ahead. Thank you Ms Turner. Well done!

Thank you

StoryCorps is a way to carry grief or express regret with honor. It is a way to say things unable to be said otherwise. Only StoryCorps is able to reflect and say that which we cannot.
