Pittsburgh nonprofit celebrates Black single mothers with new anthology

When She Thrives is helping six Pittsburgh women become published authors with a new anthology, and honoring five others at annual event.

When She Thrives, a local nonprofit with a mission to help single mothers in the Pittsburgh region “move their families from poverty to prosperity through advocacy, education, personal, and professional development” is now helping six local women share their stories on an even larger scale.

Pittsburgh mothers Alana Griffin, Sonte Grier, Teona Hall, Nakeena Hayden, Danielle King, and Ashley Whigham will all be published in Scenes from a Single Mom, an anthology of stories collected from their time participating in When She Thrive’s book project.

“The purpose of The Scenes From a Single Mom Book Project is not only to provide opportunities for single mothers to set and pursue new goals as authors and entrepreneurs but to redefine what success means for themselves and their families and to encourage and empower others to do the same,” reads a press release for the book. “Moreover, the project fosters community and accountability because each story is necessary for the project to be complete, just as each woman and her family have something to contribute to the community.”
