Millions of Americans have fallen victim to coerced or unknown sterilization procedures because they were poor, Native, immigrant, African American, or "socially unfit." Additionally, millions more faced a loss of the ability to determine their own sexual agency and reproductive rights through birth control and abortion restrictions. These practices continue today, largely unchallenged! Dr. Shantella Sherman unlocks the science of eugenics and its tentacle reach into American women's reproductive access using plain English, current events, and historical data. Virtual Class: Thursdays, July 14 and July 21 (6 pm - 8 pm).
