Join Dr. Roberta K. Timothy for a webinar focusing on experiences of anti-black racism and the impact of intersectional violence on the pregnancy and birth of racialized people. Dr. Timothy will utilize a resistance education framework and examine the current and historical experiences of maternal health inequities for African/Black descendants. Concepts that will be examined include, impacts of scientific racism and violent commodification of Black Women’s/Men’s/Trans Folks Bodies, disparities in the constructed positionality of African/Black people in the global hierarchy of health, and the impact of anti-Indigeneity and colonialism on the pregnancy and birth of Indigenous, African and racialized communities.

This presentation includes some use of gendered language as the subjects being discussed as part of this work self-identified as mothers. In order to accurately represent their stories, gendered language is maintained
