Afro Mundo: Sister Doula
7:00 pm: Social Justice Film Screening, Panel Discussion to immediately follow.
Black babies die at 5 times the rate of white babies. SISTER DOULA is the story of Hakima Payne, a nurse in Kansas City who tackles this crisis head-on, fighting to save Black babies by offering alternatives to the US healthcare system that surveils, criminalizes, and harms Black families. Mama Hakima is equal parts unapologetic truth-teller and wise-compassionate mentor. This is the story of the birth doulas she has mentored, who advocate for Black birthing people and work toward building a future.
