'Aftershock' explores Black maternal mortality; Figuring out remote work
Here & Now Anytime
Tuesday, 19 July
The maternal mortality rate for Black women is three times higher than the rate for white women in the U.S. The new documentary "Aftershock" profiles two Black women who died after giving birth and looks at how their families are working to prevent other women from dying. Paula Eiselt, who co-directed the film with Tonya Lewis Lee and Shawnee Benton Gibson, joins us. And, remote work is still a challenge two and a half years after some office workers went home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we may have figured out Zoom, new workers on-boarding remotely face specific issues. Atlantic staff writer Derek Thompson joins us.
