Join The Daughters for a much-anticipated conversation on Black women’s health with leading health professionals and experts!
This live conversation will engage the film-play —DO NO HARM— written by Anyika McMillan-Herod, co-directed by Vickie Washington and McMillan-Herod, and produced by Soul Rep Theatre Company, Perkins School of Theology at SMU, and Evelyn L. Parker, PhD. The story is a compelling one and explores the lives of three enslaved women–Anarcha, Betsey, and Lucy–who were experimented on without anesthesia by Dr. J. Marion Sims, credited as “The Father of Modern Gynecology.” The film-play is featured through the month of August as a fundraiser for The Daughters of the African Atlantic Fund.
