All My Babies Members Only Preview
- This event has passed.
Exclusive exhibit preview for members of Artesian Alliance organizations: Thronateeska, Chehaw Park & Zoo, and Flint RiverQuarium. Light refreshments will be served. The exhibit focuses on the historical and groundbreaking 1953 documentary film, All My Babies, which featured Albany midwife Mary Francis Coley. Midwife Coley was one of the legendary midwives of the South, who provided obstetric care to hundreds of black women who were banned from hospital care due to segregation. The stills from photographer Robert Goldbraith, who worked on the film with director George Stoney, provide a rare and intimate glimpse into the African-American granny midwife tradition.
