Nefertiti Austin’s request seemed simple enough – all she wanted was to adopt the boy she was already caring for as a foster parent. She joins host Krys Boyd to talk about what that painstaking process taught her about how America thinks of single, black motherhood. Her new book is called “Motherhood So White: A Memoir of Race, Gender, and Parenting in America.”
