THE THREE MOTHERS
WITH ANNA MALAIKA TUBBS IN CONVERSATION WITH DR. JASMINE MITCHELL
Much has been written about Berdis Baldwin's son James, about Alberta King's son Martin Luther, and Louise Little's son Malcolm. But virtually nothing has been said about the extraordinary women who raised them. In her groundbreaking and essential debut The Three Mothers, scholar Anna Malaika Tubbs celebrates Black motherhood by telling the story of the three women who raised and shaped some of America's most pivotal heroes.
Anna explores the violence of erasure, how the storyteller influences the story, why the recognition of mothers and their work is crucial for ournation, and how we can learn from the many lessons Alberta, Berdis, and Louise teach us.
Through Anna Malaika Tubb’s writing, Berdis, Alberta, and Louise’s stories sing. Theirs is a history forgotten that begs to be told, and Tubbs tells it brilliantly.Ibram X. Kendi,#1 New York Timesbestselling author ofHow to Be an Antiracist and National Book Award winnerStamped from the Beginning

Author, advocate, educator, and scholar Anna Malaika Tubbs is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at the University of Cambridge. Anna grew up abroad in Dubai, Mexico, Sweden, Estonia, and Azerbaijan. Influenced by her exposure to all kinds of cultures and beliefs, Anna is inspired to bring people together through the celebration of difference. Motivated by her mother’s work advocating for women’s and children’s rights around the world, Anna uses an intersectional lens in her work to advocate for women of color and educate others.
