Monday, February 15, 2016: Reproductive Justice Meets Black Lives Matter

On this week’s edition of Women’s Magazine, we talk with two groups who are working to address inequities in pregnancy and childbirth. Click here to listen to the show. 59:50 min.
Discounted books available at the book launch
First, Lisa Marie Rollins talks with Dr. Julia Chinyere Oparah, one of the editors of the new anthology, Birthing Justice: Black Women, Pregnancy and Childbirth. Oparah and co-editor Dr. Alicia D. Bonaparte are part of Black Women Birthing Justice, a collective committed to transforming the birthing experience for Black women. “If Reproductive Justice and Black Lives Matter had a baby,” Oparah says, “The result would be Black Women Birthing Justice.”  Black Women Birthing Justice will host a launch party for the book at 7 PM on February 24 at Mills College.  More info
