Today marks year seven since my Momma, Bishop Gwendolyn P. Mack took her rest.
And this episode is a special one-hour podcast episode with my dear friend, O.G. McClinton III who lost his beloved mother, Sister Sharon Harley in 2022. I’m thankful to O.G. for sharing his story because his mother’s passing is still so new. It’s still his year of firsts.
In the show, we talk about the lack of care our mothers received as Black women, how the healthcare system and hospice failed us and our mothers, and what we hope for moving forward.
