On the October 2023 cover: In order to address the disparities in maternal health, we must pave a new path and provide guidance that can ultimately save lives. As we delve into the history of Black colleges and infirmaries, we witness both their rise and unfortunate decline. Our collective journey is centered around achieving positive health outcomes for all patients. However, it is crucial to acknowledge the dark chapters of our past. One such example is the pewter spoon, a symbol of the sins committed against enslaved Black women and children. These spoons were used in Montgomery for unethical experiments. It is imperative that we take action and strive to return to a time of compassion, empathy, and respect in health care. By doing so, we can bring about a transformative change in the narratives surrounding health care today. Original artwork by Michelle Browder. Used with permission.
