Description

Moms Mabley was brilliant at disrupting the status quo with perfectly portioned bits of truth. It is the recipe of so many Black mothers, aunties, and grandmothers. Closeted geniuses, with disarming side glances, glints of spiritual insight, and easy laughs filled with ancient discernment. We have a wealth of funny in our families and Moms Mabley showed it to the world. Dressed as a toothless grandmother - using the force and bravery of her own grandmother as inspiration - she disarmed the world with edgy comedic perfection. One-liners distilled in hard times. Loaded.  Waiting for just a minute of airtime to kill. Quick wit is survival. Moms Mabley survived the unsurvivable by becoming the funniest woman on the planet. 

Let’s learn her magic.
