Join hosts Alice Lynch and Sumayya Coleman and show commentator Tonya Lovelace as they talk to Loretta Ross and Annika Leonard about reproductive justice and placing the experiences and priorities of Black women who are survivors of domestic and sexual violence in the foreground. This interview will illuminate the importance and reasons Black women should continue to lead the fight to control their own bodies and reproductive destinies. Forced sex, birth control sabotage and compromised safer sex practices are issues that Black women survivors experience. Statistics show that Black women experience the greatest reproductive health disparities: infant mortality rates were almost 3 times higher for Black infants than white infants, and the estimated rate of new HIV infections were 20 times higher for Black women than whites and almost five times higher as that of Latinas. This show will feature some of the ground-breaking work being done by health and reproductive rights organizations to address these issues and more within the Black community.
