On Saturday, March 31, International Center for Traditional Childbearing (ICTC) Dallas Membership, will host a special screening of ‘All My Babies: A Midwife’s Own Story.’
Just in time to close out Women’s History Month, All My Babies tells the beautiful story of ‘Miss Mary’ Coley, an African-American midwife living in rural Georgia. The film was written, produced, and directed by George C. Stoney and was in close collaboration with Miss Coley. The production was originally intended to serve as a public health demonstration video for the training of granny midwives of the early 1950’s. It has since gained national recognition as being “culturally, historically, and artistically significant work.” In 2002, it was selected by the Librarian of Congress for permanent preservation in the National Film Registry.
Mary Frances Hill Coley help deliver over 3,000 babies in Dougherty, Lee, Mitchell, and Worth counties. She is known for her tireless work ethic and dedication to serving both black and white mothers in need.
This special screening will be held at Pan African Connection, Saturday March 31st at 3pm. Pan African Connection is located at 828 4th Ave Dallas, TX 75226. This event is free and open to the public. Donations to support ICTC are welcome.
