Mama is a short documentary film created in The Representation Project’s 2020 Youth Media Academy. The tragic deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd have rocked the nation and left three mothers without their children. Children they carried for nine months—their own flesh, blood, and love. Hear from three mothers, Arkesha, Samantha, and Whitney, who share their hopes and fears for their children and how they navigate raising and preparing their children for the challenges and threats of growing up black in America.
