Beyond the myth: Black British single mothers and their sons
talk and Q&A with PhD researcher Miranda Armstrong

The proportion of single mother households within Black communities has been used to explain the poor experiences of Black youth, boys and young men in particular. In addition, the parenting of single women has been underestimated and disrespected – rarely is the responsibility they undertake and the hidden labour they do acknowledged.

Miranda Armstrong, a PhD candidate at Goldsmiths College, has investigated negative claims about the single mothering of sons. Her study found evidence that dominant narratives about Black single mothers raising sons are distorted and seldom reflect the realities of mother-son pairs. This myth-busting talk outlines:

  • – The development of stereotypes and misrepresentation of black single mother households from the mid-twentieth century onwards.
  • – The social and economic factors that make single motherhood so challenging for black women in western societies.
  • – Research findings that challenge us to reframe our understandings of the single mothering of sons and black single motherhood more broadly.

Join us for this stimulating talk and Q&A.

This online conversation will be hosted by Sister Marine. The Zoom link will be sent one hour before the event starts.
