It’s a Bey-B Shower!
Mother’s Day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate motherhood than by helping out mothers in need? Black Femme Excellence Co. is organizing a community baby shower in honor of Beyonce’s pregnancy. It will feature presents, baby-themed games, and activities for children. The event is part of a national effort organized by Penny for Your Thots, which seeks to fight misogynoir, and support intersectional womanism.
If you are a person of color who is pregnant or already has a child, feel free to stop by and enjoy your baby shower. You can also indicate your ‘nesting’ needs at the event’s Facebook page .
Black babies born in Pittsburgh in 2017 have a mortality rate that’s almost three times that of the local white community. It is one of the highest in the entire nation. We can help change this. If you would like to donate to the project, you can drop off gifts at the House Of Manna in Homewood, 7207 Idlewild St, Pgh 15208. If you are able to contribute financially, visit https://venmo.com/BlackFemmeExcellenceCo.
This event will be wheelchair accessible and there will be an ASL interpreter on site. The event takes place at Repair the World in Garfield on Saturday, May 13th, from 12-3.
