dc.description.abstractIn this paper, I demonstrate how black women's treatment in the US birth control movement excluded the black women themselves from being involved in the conversation and proposed solution. An analysis of the history of black women during the movement highlights potential pitfalls health care providers and social reformers often fall into when trying to improve the contraceptive access and education of black women. As the long history of social repression continues to play out in the lives of modern black women, I argue is essential that historians studying birth control, and those involved in the current access to it, understand how the limitations placed upon these women during the birth control movement are still relevant today.
