After viewing When the Bough Breaks, please response to ONE of the following questions after reading the first quote:
Neonatologist Dr. Richard David says: “there’s something about growing up as a Black female in the United States that’s not good for your childbearing health.”
• What evidence did Dr. Collins and David discover that undercuts genetic explanations for racial disparities in birth outcomes?
• Why is it significant that the daughters of African immigrants had worse birth outcomes than their mothers?
• Why do African American mothers – even those with college degrees – have more low birth-weight babies than white American and African immigrant women?
