Issues Facing Minority Mothers To Be Aired At Howard University

Washington, D.C. -- What are the greatest challenges facing mothers today? How are these similar or different across faiths and cultures? With the increasing feminization of the workplace, what policy changes at the micro/macro levels would be most useful in alleviating these challenges? 

These are some of the issues to be discussed at a pre-Mother’s Day symposium at Howard University’s Ralph J. Bunche International Affairs Center, 2218 Sixth Street, NW, Washington, DC 20059, May 6, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The discussion is centered on a new parenting book, How Will I Know My Children When I Get to Heaven? by Grace Virtue, a Jamaican immigrant. Backed by a Ph.D. in the humanities, Virtue explores topics like faith, education, work-life balance, single parenting, body image, media usage, racism, sexism, multiculturalism, abortion, homosexuality and other modern day concerns impacting women and girls.

 

“On the complex issue of modern mothering, this book picks up many strands and weaves a finely texured product,” says Scherri Henderson, President and CEO of Spiritual Images Inc.

Drawn from the nation’s major faith/ethnic communities, speakers include: Wanjiru Kamau, Ed.D., President & CEO, African Immigrant & Refugee Foundation; Rev. Denise King-Miller, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor, Department of Afro-American Studies, Howard University; Rev. Julia Jarvis, Spiritual Director, Interfaith Families Project of Greater Washington; Tamar Abrams, Communications Director, Institute of Policy Studies; Anita Nahal, Ph.D., Acting Director of International Studies, Howard University; Mozna Khraiwesh, doctoral student at Howard University and Walkiria E. Pool, President and Founder, Centro de Apoyo Familiar of Silver Spring.

The symposium is co-sponsored by the Ralph J. Bunche International Affairs Center, the Institute for Policy Studies and the Afro-American Resource Center.
