A Film Screening at Mills College: Tatia’s Story, Life to Death in 10 Hours

Oakland, CA—February 6, 2018

Tatia's StoryAs part of a series of events in recognition of Black History Month, Mills College presents a screening of Tatia’s Story, Life to Death in 10 Hours. The film, written and directed by Carmen Traylor Jones, documents the story of Tatia Oden French and how she tragically died along with her unborn daughter after being induced with Cytotec, a drug used off-label and still not approved for labor induction by the FDA.

Provost and Dean of the Faculty Chinyere Oparah has been invited to be part of a panel examining issues surrounding birthing and women of color. Oparah is co-founder of Black Women Birthing Justice. She is also co-author of Battling Over Birth: Black Women and the Maternal Health Care Crisis in California, a new report which documents human rights abuses in California’s maternal health-care system and calls for corrective action by practitioners, health insurers, and policy-makers.
