LTYM: Madison Associate Producer Takeyla Benton lays bare the painfully raw and very real fears within in her soul as the mother to a sweet, dimple-cheeked Black boy. “How do I teach him individuality and to be accountable for his actions when his mere presence evokes the stereotypical mass panic and paranoia that pushes the plague of imprisonment and poaching of Black men into extinction?”

We are grieving with all the Black mothers who too soon had to say goodbye to their sons and daughters. We stand together as mothers, family, and allies declaring Black lives have value and matter.
