Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011
Denene Millner of My Brown Baby
Denene Miller states in her bio that she started My Brown Baby because she wanted to create a space “for African-American moms looking to lend their critical but all-too-often ignored voices to the national parenting debate.” And we’re so glad that she did, because she’s right – African-American moms have been under-represented in North American parenting conversations, to the detriment of those conversations.
