"Nobody's free until everybody's free."-Fannie Lou Hammer

Check out an excerpt my essay, "Giving Birth When Black", in the new anthology, "Ask: Building Consent Culture!"

"...When I think of the state of Black maternal and infant health, I think of the enslaved Black women who were victims of highly unethical medical experiments conducted by James Marion Sims, who ironically, was credited as “The Father of Gynecology”. I think of Henrietta Lacks, a poor Black tobacco farmer, whose cells were taken without her knowledge and used to make medical strides in vaccines, cloning, and in vitro fertilization. I think of enslaved women, who had their babies ripped from their breasts and had their slave master’s children forced upon their breasts to feed, while their babies starved to death. I think of Sybrina Fulton, Valerie Bell, Lesley McSpadden, and hundreds of other Black women who gave birth to beautiful Black children despite these circumstances, yet had their babies taken from them due to white supremacy and police brutality. I think of the thousands of Black women who did not (and still do not) have access to adequate prenatal education, healthcare, or even a choice of where and how they choose to give birth. Black women are owed endless gratitude and compensation for our physical, mental, emotional, and mental labor and our babies are owed the world- but the only ones fighting for ourselves and our babies are other Black women.
