Women's History Month Film Festivals, discussions & events

Women's History Month Film Festival Continues with:

All My Babies
Today, Monday, March 24
7:00pm in room 248 Student Learning Center

A 1952 Georgia Dept. of Public Health Film, All My Babies, was Intended as a teaching tool for midwives and is an intimate look at the work of rural Georgian African-American midwife “Miss Mary” Coley. In documenting the preparation for and delivery of babies in rural conditions, the filmmakers inadvertently captured a telling snapshot at the socioeconomic conditions of the era along with the inherent racism of the medical establishment. Dr. Nichole Ray will facilitate discussion after the film.
