Frances Harper

"Every mother should be a true artist." - Frances Harper

From her short story, The Two Offers. It was the first short story published by an African American author. In addition to being a teacher and prolific writer, Harper was a staunch abolitionist who advocated for racial equality and women's rights. 

We loved the idea of mother as artist, helping to guide and shape her children, and the full excerpt captures Frances' poignant thought: 

"Every mother should be a true artist, who knows how to weave into her child’s life images of grace and beauty, the true poet capable of writing on the soul of childhood the harmony of love and truth, and teaching it how to produce the grandest of all poems—the poetry of a true and noble life."
