Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty by Dorothy Roberts
Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty

pandora, August 30, 2012

If you care about women, health disparities, human rights or maternity care, this book is essential reading. Roberts goes into depth about the history of eugenics, birth control and the experience of black women in this country. Lucid and well written, Roberts raises important questions about our society, health and race. Her extensive footnotes are a treasure trove for anyone who wants to learn more about any of these areas.
