Welcome to our community.

There is unspeakable anxiety that comes with bringing forth Black life in a world that takes Black lives with impunity. Our series began with a reflection on the death of George Floyd. We end our series with an episode about birth. Even in the midst of tragedy, somewhere, somehow, new life is beginning. This series is brought to you by the California Medical Association and the California Health Care Foundation. Learn more on our website. Illustrations by Ashley Floreal Original music by Janae E.
