Bringin' in Da Spirit is a soulful and inspiring documentary, that records the rich history of Black midwives in the United States.
Through the use of first person narrative and rare archival images, this documentary provides a moving glimpse of the women who have skillfully brought scores of children across the threshold of existence. Narrated by Phylicia Rashad, this evocative and passionate film celebrates the women who have committed themselves to holistic answers, amidst powerful misconceptions about the practice of midwifery and virulent opposition from practitioners of Western medicine.
We are requesting a minimum $5.00 donation. All proceeds will benefit WISE Community Doulas and A Woman’s Way, two local organizations dedicated to providing healthy, respectful and evidence-based care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period, for POC specifically pregnant black people.
Following the screening will be a panel discussion featuring local Midwives, Doula's and Birth Advocates. Sakina O'Uhuru (CNM), who is featured in the film, will be one of our panelist.
