SocaMom.com is a Caribbean Parenting blog and community created and maintained by Eva Greene Wilson. On SocaMom.com, we share book, movie, and product reviews, opinion pieces, recipes, interviews, events, travel tips, and educational materials from a Caribbean perspective.
The website is meant to be an introduction to Caribbean culture for those who want to begin to expose their children and familiarize or re-familiarize themselves with a culture that they haven’t explored or from which they have become a bit estranged. The SocaMom community extends offline to two groups of Caribbean moms who get together in person in Washington, DC and Brooklyn, NY.
