Health, Hope & Happiness - The Black Woman Experience

FOX 5 NY explores the black women's health crisis and the fight to seek equitable health treatment for black women. Black women makes up 21 million American citizens, but a 300-year legacy of black women's health issues being ignored or unrecognized has led to black women having to give up on dreams of having a family, or, in some cases, losing their lives due to medical issues. FOX 5 NY takes a look at three different womens' stories, from the struggle simply to have children, a lack of black sperm donors, maternal mortality among black women and black women who choose not to have children.
