This will be my final post for the year 2016. I am taking time off from blogging to devote to completing my book, "Birthing While Black; how racism and white privilege kills Black babies." We are living in very difficult times. When I watch my TV and see thousands marching in the streets of American cities, I know change is coming. Whether it be for the better or worse, I do not know. All I know is that now is the time to add my voice to the conversation. Now is the time for the publication of my book. I will not only complete my book, but also write curriculum for my new cultural congruency training for maternal infant health organizations. I hope to complete both by December and start offering my curriculum in 2017 as well as (hopefully) a book tour. I am greatly disturbed by what is happening in our country, as are many of you. This is the contribution to that dialog that is for me to make. Thank you to those who continue to hear my voice.
