How Black Mothers Say I Love You
By Trey Anthony

Themes of family, identity, and forgiveness are explored as Daphne, a Jamaican immigrant and single mother, relies on her three daughters to care for her at a moment of crisis.
The characters navigate their past and present relationships, cultural differences, and the challenges of expressing love in their own unique ways. It's a heartfelt and powerful story that celebrates the strength and resilience of Black women and the complexities of mother-daughter relationships.
