In Her

Shamony Makeba Gibson was the love of my life. She passed away on October 6th, 2019, due to a pulmonary embolism. If provided with the proper health care and detected in a timely manner, this diagnosis is easily treatable and highly preventable. Unfortunately, Shamony’s case is not an anomaly. Roughly 700-900 pregnant BIPOC women transition every year due to the same medical negligence that Shamony suffered from.

IN HER HONOR is a tribute to all the women that suffered the ULTIMATE SACRFICE to bring our black and brown babies into this world. All the women that you see here were mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, partners, and friends. They left behind a community of people that loved them in exchange to not only bring new life into this world, but to also forge a new regime of soldiers with the intent to fight against the hypocrisy that is the Health Care System.
