The College of Arts and Humanities and the School of Public Health co-host a screening of "Birthing Justice," a feature-length documentary discussing the issues fueling the maternal health crisis within the African American community and advocating for best practices to enhance birthing equity for all women, especially Black women. Our filmmakers explore this national epidemic in four regions—Washington, D.C., Augusta, GA, several areas in Missouri, and California, interviewing those affected by current policies, i.e. birthing individuals and healthcare professionals, as well as those, such as birthing advocates, activists and policy makers, in the forefront of advancing policy change. 

We believe every woman deserves a beautiful birth story. To learn more, go to

Film producer Denise Pines will be in attendance. There will be a brief reception after the screening.
