Coping with the Reality of Anti-Blackness in America: Black Moms Discuss The 400-Year Holocaust
Time & Location

About The Event
Over a million Black women give birth and become mothers each year in the U.S. For Black Maternal Health Week, we invite Black moms in America to share how they navigate an inherently anti-Black society while building healthy and thriving lives for themselves, their children, and their families.
To center our discussion, author and anti-racism scholar Dante King will share readings and insights from his book, “The 400 Year Holocaust: White America's Legal, Psychopathic, and Sociopathic Black Genocide.” The audience members will be asked to engage their minds and senses while considering historical examples of violence and oppression in the book to raise and enhance their awareness. After, a panel of Black moms and advocates will discuss how people from all backgrounds can utilize the findings and principles of the book to create an America that rejects anti-Blackness and allows current and future generations of Black people to flourish. Join us to celebrate this important week and learn how we can combat anti-Black racism to improve Black maternal health.
