Black Mama: Endangered

Charlotte Reproductive Action Network and Hannah Hasan/Epoch Tribe present Black Mama: Endangered, a live storytelling event on black women's reproductive rights and experiences with the United States' healthcare system.

Nationally, black women are four times more likely to die in childbirth than white women. In places such as Georgia or New York, that statistic is as high as twelve times more likely. This project is a live story-sharing performance of ten true stories - all shared by local storytellers - that unpack the experiences of black women and their trials with the healthcare system. The theme will be healthcare issues that black women face, including prenatal care, delivery, miscarriage, stillbirth, illness, death, and the impact on families. In addition to the stories that are shared, there will be a visual component that also shares these experiences through visual storytelling.

Prior to the storytelling portion of the event, there will be an opportunity to connect with CRAN organizations to learn more about community resources and volunteer opportunities. Directly following the stories will be a community conversation. More details on participating organizations, speakers, and panelists coming soon.
