For centuries American black women haven’t had the luxury of staying at home and raising their children. First there was slavery where black women were so preoccupied with raising other people’s children their own often went neglected. Then there was/is institutional racism that almost requires a two person income to support a family. So we worked.
Then as things began to change and women gained equal footing in educational institutions and in the workplace, black women grinded to make a place for themselves in the corporate world. We worked.
Now that society and opportunities have changed can black women devote their go-get-em attitude to staying home and raising their children?

Would you consider becoming a stay at home if you could afford it financially?
