Triangle Arts Association collaborates with the Black Youth Project 100 ( byp100.org ) to host The Unjust Outcomes: Reproductive Violence on Black Bodies 1800 to Present which will bring together social activists from the Black Youth Project’s NYC chapter to increase knowledge about improving reproductive health outcomes for black families. We will explore how past and current socio-political climates impact the health of Black people. The panelists will analyze the unjust health disparities afflicting Black communities ranging from maternal death, to failure to thrive, to deficits in later life as seen through a reproductive justice lens. Our aim is to engage members of the community and gatekeepers of health information from different backgrounds to discuss collaborative methods of approaching these issues. The Unjust Outcomes: Reproductive Violence on Black Bodies 1800 to Present will be a platform for communities to engage in Black health throughout 2018 and beyond.
