Sista Midwife Productions presents a screening and discussion of Bringin' in Da Spirit, a documentary that celebrates the history of the midwives, particularly Granny Midwives, in the United States from the earliest days of slavery until today. The screening is presented by The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy, School of Nursing and Dell Medical School.
The screening will be on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. CT in PHR 3.106 on The University of Texas at Austin campus (map).
Through the use of first person narrative and rare archival images, Bringin' in Da Spirit provides a moving glimpse of the women who have skillfully brought scores of children across the threshold of existence. Narrated by Phylicia Rashad, this evocative and passionate film celebrates women who have committed themselves to holistic answers amidst powerful misconceptions about the practice of midwifery and virulent opposition from practitioners of Western medicine.
