February is Black History Month. While we celebrate diversity every day of the year, we are marking this month and celebrating by sharing the stories of incredible Black moms and by amplifying their voices all month long. This week we are introducing you to Black moms you should be following on Instagram. We recently caught up with Jenny LeFlore, aka @mamafreshchi and she made an amazing point. She said, ” Books and fun facts make it seem like Black History is in the past. BCB, you’re using your platform to amplify the voices of Black women, showcasing Black Motherhood and also that mothers aren’t just all the same.”
These women here, you NEED to know about them and you should absolutely be following them. Click on their names to follow them and their incredible life pursuits on Instagram.
A LONGTIME supporter of BCB, @mamafreshchi just hit a HUGE milestone, 10K followers! It’s no wonder, Jenny Leflore talks to her audience in the most authentic manner, sharing her experiences without sugarcoating anything. A recent new mom for the second time, Jenny hasn’t been shy about sharing what pregnancy is like at forty years old. She has a true gift for captivating an audience, sharing everything she can about motherhood.
A dedicated mom of three who homeschools her daughters, Ashley’s teaching career doesn’t stop there. She has created a platform that educates and celebrates diversity and launched a movement to help. @momsincolor is a collaboration with other Black moms to celebrate diversity and motherhood. She’s also written a book on the same topic. Beautiful Beautiful Me (@beautifulmecampaign) is the first of a series discussing diversity, love, family and skin tone with through poetry for kids to read.
A full-time “Psychiatric Physician Assistant by day, and a Motherhood, Lifestyle & Wellness Blogger by night,” this powerhouse is also a mom round the clock. She talks about managing the chaos beautifully—without all of the guilt— through her blog and Instagram account. There is no doubt that Onyi’s content helps other moms facing the ups and downs of managing “it all.”
Dr. Jazmine is a clinical psychologist, published author and mom of two….she gets it, she’s here to help, and she’s built a business doing just that. You can watch her on Youtube, follow her on Instagram or read her blog. She has a ton of amazing check lists with tips and tricks for parenting—according to her website, she’s spent years filtering through the noise on the Internet so that you don’t have to.
Mattie James loves to share and “make everyday magic” as exemplified on her Instagram account and through her website. A now mom of three who started blogging as a hobby, this MomBoss has now made an incredible business out of the craft. Today, this she also teaches influencers how to pitch brands and make money off their Instagram pages. Her background is fascinating (you’ll have to check it out to see why!) and she certainly has a lot of knowledge and experience to share in every aspect of life.
Porsha Carr is a mom and blogger advocating for the things that are important to her including self-care, BLM (black lives matter), and DIPG (Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas). She doesn’t claim to be perfect and knows that she is not the best speller….but nevertheless she loves to write and share her knowledge and experience. Through her blog she celebrates family, photography and travel—even though she doesn’t love airplanes. This mom is the real deal.
This Chicago-based mom blogger offers a little of everything on her Instagram and blog—from recipes and entertainment tips, to home decor and a little bit of everyday life. Jessie is also the co-founder of a marketing consultancy, @themarketinggreenhouse. She shows how you can truly “have it all.”
We love Denise’s Instagram and blog as it is fresh, positive and advocates for wellness and self care. Moms need all of the above right now. This mom is truly a hack of all trades—a Mama Glow doula, she graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology where she studied studied Direct & Interactive Marketing. Now a mom of two, Denise focuses on wellness and lifestyle for her growing audience.
From weekend news anchor to homeschooling mom, Jennifer Borget believes in cherishing every moment of every day. It’s no wonder her blog is called Cherish 365. It’s there and on her Instagram that you can find tips and tricks for living life to the fullest. The positive outlook of this mom of three is certainly contagious, which is just part of the reason why we recommend giving her a follow.
In 2014 Shavonda and her family downsized—and now she shares all of her tips for small space living on her Instagram and blog. But @sgardnerstyle is SO MUCH more than a design account. Shavonda shares her life, her kids and what’s important to her as well. If you’re looking for design inspiration she is a MUST FOLLOW, but we promise that you’ll get so much more than that if you do.
