    Anthonia Akitunde - The Voice Behind Mater Mea

    in Family

    MGN Radio welcomes Anthonia Akitunde to our show on Wednesday at 9pm EST. Anthonia Akitunde is the founder and editor-in-chief of Mater Mea. Raised in Kansas City, Missouri on a healthy diet of books and magazines, her decision to be a journalist was practically inevitable. After graduatingfrom the University of Chicago and Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, Anthonia moved to New York City to further her journalism career, freelancing for The New York Times, Fast Company, Fortune.com, and The Root. Always bothered by the lack of diversity in her favorite magazines—she even wrote letters to Ebony and Essence when she was 12, proposing they create a teenaged version of their publications and make her editor-in-chief—Anthonia was especially struck by the dearth in mainstream media of professional women of color. When founder emeritus Deborah Choi reached out to partner with her on a new site that would present a morerealistic and relatable view of black motherhood, she knew she’d found her calling.
