De goede mama
An intimate and candid look at raising children of colour in the Netherlands.
All the books in the world cannot prepare you for motherhood. Motherhood is intense, relentless and fascinating, in every sense of the word. With trial and error and many tears, you get through each day as a mother. Motherhood is love, motherhood is loss, motherhood is sleepless nights, motherhood is worry and so much more.
In De goede mama: 13 visies van moeders van kleur mothers of colour from all over the Netherlands talk about their struggles, experiences, losses, highlights and pain points of raising children of colour in the Netherlands. An introduction to different worlds in which we will be welcomed hospitably.
With contributions from:
Rowan Blijd, Senae Chakrouni, Ernestine Comvalius, Marisella de Cuba, Nathalie Emanuels, Hoda Hamdaoui, Mona Hegazy, Chee-Han Kartosen-Wong, Diana Khayyata, Fatima Lamkharrat, Patty Rudge, Brenda Suitela and Tsega Worku.
