Kevin Durant gave a beautiful tribute to his mother, Wanda Pratt, during his speech while accepting the NBA's MVP award. The moment was an important one because too often Black mothers, single Black mothers in particular, are painted as inept and ineffective. It seems the only time we can collectively rally to celebrate a Black mother is after her child is dead.

The short commercial is beautiful, and clearly Wanda did a great job.

Watch the entire MVP acceptance speech below.
