Wonder why Black women are dying at 3 times higher rates surrounding childbirth?
The short story titled, The Quiltmakers, by Dr. B.K. Edmond and his sister and co-author Ms. Cassandra Edmond, provides a new and novel weapon in the fight for improved care for Black mothers.

It is for the sisters, daughters, cousins, aunts, wives, girlfriends and lovers who participate willingly in the beautiful creative revolutionary act of birth; thus, affirming daily each black child's value to this world.”

rate of Black mothers during childbirth, which is 3 times the normal rate.
