A mother & daughter’s struggle to unite and fight to survive through all of the turbulence of life. But, this is not just our story. It is every woman's story. Everyone will see some part of his or her lives portrayed if they have ever felt a feeling, dreamed a dream and lived a life full of hopes.
"Black, Just Like My Mama" clearly defines the relationship between all mothers and daughters whose eyes reflect each others hopes, dreams and aspirations while bridging the generation gap with love, understanding and inner peace.
Sometimes it's a tedious journey.
