Racism. Toxic stress. Birth outcomes.
How are these things intertwined? Join First Year Cleveland and ideastream for a film screening and panel discussion of the short film, Toxic: A Black Woman's Story, which seeks to explore that question.
Peer into the world of the film’s lead protagonist, Nina. An elite lawyer, loyal wife and loving mother of a teen boy, Nina is navigating life (and a pregnancy) to the best of her ability. But sometimes the forces on a woman—especially a black woman—can be too much to bear.
In this highly anticipated short film, the viewer is invited on a journey of perspective transformation. Follow Nina in this day-in-the-life drama, and see the world through the eyes of a successful black woman who must navigate an unjust world while trying to protect the world she has created for herself and her family.
Seating is limited and RSVP is required.
Mitchell's Ice Cream will be served and five $25 Starbucks gift cards will be raffled to registered attendees.
