Come Celebrate International Midwives Month With Ictc! says
Come celebrate International Midwives Month with a special screening of "Bringin' In Da Spirit," an evocative and passionate documentary that celebrates the Black midwives who have committed themselves to holistic answers in the face of powerful misconceptions about the practice of midwifery and virulent opposition from practitioners of Western medicine. Narrated by Phylicia Rashad, this film won the Paul Robeson Award Initiative Special Prize, FESPACO, Burkina Faso, 2005.

After the film, Shafia Monroe will moderate a panel discussion with Pastor E.d. Mondaine, Mariah Taylor and Willie Poinsette whose mother and grandmother were midwives. Hear their response to the film, about the midwives in their lives, the role that Black midwives play today and how to get more women to become and use midwives. There will be refreshments, socializing, ICTC information and T-shirts available for purchase after the discussion.

Online registration will be open by March 20th at our website:
