    This is very much a research book that follows a study done in Harlem toward the end of the 20th century. The researchers set out to determine why black women and black babies are more likely to die in the United States, especially around labor and delivery. The sad truth is that 3o years later, the statistics have not changed. If this topic interests you at all, this is canon.
