Cory Booker & Ayanna Pressley Unveil Bill To Keep Black Women From Dying In Childbirth

We recently read this article and thought "whoa, this is great!" https://buff.ly/2VfHELW. Our new book Reproductive Injustice: Racism, Pregnancy, and Premature Birth by Dana-Ain Davis talks about just this!

Black women have higher rates of premature birth than other women in America. This cannot be simply explained by economic factors, with poorer women lacking resources or access to care. Even professional, middle-class black women are at a much higher risk of premature birth than low-income white women in the United States. Dána-Ain Davis looks into this phenomenon, placing racial differences in birth outcomes into a historical context, revealing that ideas about reproduction and race today have been influenced by the legacy of ideas which developed during the era of slavery.

I’ve talked to dozens of parents about why they don’t vaccinate. Here’s what they told me.

"Right now, the country is watching the number of measles cases increase each day, hitting a new high of 764 cases across 23 states since it was eradicated from the US in 2000. With 60 new cases in the past week, we can expect the outbreak will continue to spread. There is no disagreement that vaccine refusal is the cause of outbreaks."

May 2019 Reads for the Rest of Us

"By reflecting upon several Black girl characters, Thomas explores stereotypes, barriers and exclusion in speculative media. She argues that an increase in radical Afrofuturism and Black feminism is needed to address these inequities and improve representation in literature."

THE DARK FANTASTIC by Ebony Thomas is recommended by Ms. Magazine!

These 20 books disrupt norms, tell stories at the intersections and lift up feminist perspectives. Which ones will you read?

"The issue is not simply a need for more female superhero films, but to acknowledge that women (whether they be characters, content producers, or consumers) are still required to go higher, further, faster than their counterparts, and even then can’t expect equal treatment. We need to demand more."

“The fact that we couldn't get married... just blows my mind".

It’s only been 52 years since interracial marriages were legalised in the US.

This week, we look at relationships that transcend racial and cultural differences and ask: Does love really conquer all?

The Stonewall Riots

Published on the fiftieth anniversary of the moment the first brick (or shot glass?) was thrown, THE STONEWALL RIOTS: A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY allows readers to take stock of how LGBTQ life has changed in the US, and how it has stayed the same. It offers campy stories of queer resistance, courageous accounts of movements and protests, powerful narratives of police repression, and lesser-known stories otherwise buried in the historical record, from an account of ball culture in the mid-sixties to a letter by Black Panther Huey P. Newton addressed to his brothers and sisters in the resistance. For anyone committed to political activism and social justice, The Stonewall Riots provides a much-needed resource for renewal and empowerment.

Jim Crow North: A New Book about Segregation and Struggle outside the South – AAIHS

"The history of Jim Crow does not begin in the South after the Civil War. It starts decades earlier in the North. We hope this book inspires historians to conduct more research on segregation and struggle in the North. And we hope scholars and students will grow more comfortable naming northern segregation and inequality for what it was: a Jim Crow system maintained by law, policy, policing, and everyday customs."

Analysis | How Poland’s attacks on LGBT rights strengthened the Polish LGBT movement

"When the taken-for-granted routines and accommodations that gays and lesbians had constructed to negotiate their daily lives suddenly came under threat, individuals became more willing to risk costly collective action."

Conor O'Dwyer, #author of COMING OUT OF COMMUNISM, explores how the backlash against Poland's #LGBT movement helped it grow in the Washington Post

As the right-wing governing party starts up more attacks, will that happen again?

A dung beetle has a brain the size of a grain of rice, and yet it shows a tremendous amount of intelligence when it comes to rolling its food source -- animal excrement -- home. How? It all comes down to a dance.
