"Book On It"

'“Where is your bookmark?”

My bookmark is in “Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and The Meaning of Liberty” by Dorothy Roberts. This book has been on my “to-read” shelf for years. In a treacherous political climate of women’s access, or lack thereof, to their body and reproductive health, I found it was finally time to delve into this book.

As the book focuses on black women, there is a heightened part that opens the discussion. Roberts wrote this book over twenty years ago. The information is not new yet affirms the atrocities occurring to black women in their pursuit of life and autonomy of their body.
