    Mother Tongue Monologues is an annual event, which is organized and hosted by Black Women’s Blueprint. However, the theme of MTM changes every year. Next year’s theme for Truthbearing Women, for Emerging Sons, and Other Keepers of the Flame. For more information please visit http://mothertonguemonologues.org/

Got something to say?
