WISDOM INTERVIEWS

Imagine having a recorded interview of your parents or grandparents to share with future generations. What would you pay for this today? We feel this is a priceless gift for the entire family. 

The Process: One of our amazing community members will conduct and record a Zoom interview with the loved one(s) of your choosing in order to capture their essence. We will document their family history, family stories, wisdom and advice. The process takes about an hour and a half. This recording will one day be invaluable to you and your entire family. 

Now combine a video that will one day be priceless with the knowledge that you are also helping an amazing young person on their path to success. Please take the time to read our interviewers blog posts about how this work is changing their lives.

BLACK HERSTORY MONTH PROJECT

Dr. Clarke is using the $1,200 he received from the second government stimulus to pay our team to interview and learn from Black Women. Some interviews will focus on the past, some the present, and some the future. But all interviews will be focused on elevating Black voices.

 

OUR MISSION

Empowering and opening doors for young women of color.

It is our belief that young women are the future.  Mamabird Interviews is a slingshot, the sooner these amazing young women get power in our society, the sooner our society becomes more just. Many lessons are learned through this work and this intersectional interview will be a treasure for years to come. Please do something good for both yourself, and us and reach out today about interviewing your loved ones.

WHY THE LOW TECH SOLUTION?

What about the quality of the video?

Done is better than perfect. Once our loved ones are lost, it is too late to record them. Simply stated a Zoom interview is good enough. It will capture your essence. It will be less expensive. It will one day be priceless. 


If you want a more high tech solution and are willing to pay for it we would love to work with you. Dr. Clarke is a professional videographer and has a wedding film company www.mamabirdweddingfilms.com . We do high quality work, and for wedding films it is very important to have high tech solutions to capture the beauty of your special day. We have the ability to do higher quality production value, but tomorrow is not promised, and we want to capture as many people as possible as soon as possible.

This is a service that everyone needs. If we are able to get more interviews done and not stress about perfection, we will have a much larger and more positive impact on the world as a whole. And that is truly the vision of Mamabird. Help empower young women of color, so they can change the world as soon as possible for everyone!

Over the course of the summer months we paid 10 speakers to come speak to our community on a variety of subjects ranging from Mental Health, to Entrepreneurship. We have found our community members are able to retain so much more after graduating high school due to their lived life experiences. We called these classes Mamabird Gradschool.
