It happened a few weeks before Mothers' Day; a group of women got together help their "babies". This was not an occasion to raise money to buy milk, diapers and the like, but to chart a path for those who may fall through the cracks, in this tumultuous technological world. Today doctors are not only replacing hearts, but doing the same with livers, shoulders and even faces.
African American mothers want their babies to meet those challenges, and share in the accolades bestowed on them as seen happen to their counterparts.
The Fellowship Youth Outreach and Mentoring Program was created for that purpose. The mothers did not go out soliciting funds through bake sales, but instead held a concert, entitled DIVAS UNPLUGGED, paying tribute to female pop and jazz icons past and present from the African American community.
The Forest Park Community in Baltimore should know of Bishop Carroll Jones and his outreach programs. Undoubtedly, and more importantly, the monies raised by the concert will go to empowering these mothers babies; towards sharpening their skills in math and science, including GED certification.
A notable effort by mothers: Caronne Jones, Tamika Caldwell, and Aisha Bello: for the love of their children, i.e. the beneficiaries of their "motherrs" efforts.
