This September the Museum of Motherhood is extremely pleased to welcome Jade Jemison and Tori Wright to our fall semester team. Please join us in our growing excitement to get to work on some great new projects in grant writing and art-sourcing as we dive into more about moms’ lives and work.
We are pleased to welcome Arun Sankar for a three-month internships with MoM. During his time with us, Arun will be reading through multiple texts related to sociology, feminism, history, and mother studies and identifying relevant quotes that we will share here to educate and inspire.
Today’s introductory quote was by Keilah Billings taken from Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge.
The sentiment expressed, uses the popular film, The Matrix, to help elucidate a sociological viewpoint. In this case, that viewpoint asserts that it is important to wake up in our lives to all kinds of possibilities and to thoughtfully examine our perceptions and surroundings. Only in this way, can we truly liberate ourselves to our own best lives.
There’s been a lot of activity at MOM over the last several months. I thought it might be good to connect everyone and keep you all updated and also take this opportunity to introduce our newest team member, Emma Andrews. Welcoming her is a bonafide full circle experience as her mother was one of the first team members here at MOM almost 20 years ago.
