Live Action is screening a powerful documentary on social media this month called Maafa21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America. See powerful testimony from one woman who was subjected to forced sterilization without her knowledge.
At the age of 14, after becoming pregnant from a violent rape, the eugenics board of the State of North Carolina decided Elaine Riddick should not have any more children and sterilized her without consent. Riddick claims the reason she was sterilized without her knowledge or approval was because the state of North Carolina had ruled her “feebleminded,” a degrading term commonly used in eugenics. She recently told her emotional story in the powerful documentary film, produced by Life Dynamics, Inc., called Maafa21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America, which Live Action is screening on social media this month. North Carolina’s eugenics program was funded in part by a member of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s Board of Directors and close friend of the Federation — Clarence Gamble. Gamble sat on the board of Sanger’s American Birth Control League (ABCL) as well as Planned Parenthood, and was also a financier of Sanger’s birth control crusade. In addition, he helped to fund the North Carolina Eugenics program.
Maafa21 clearly exposes the orchestrated plan of sterilization, birth control, and eugenics (improving the human race by controlled selective breeding) by groups intent on reducing, or even eliminating, the black population following the abolition of slavery. Yes folks. THIS is part of our history. And yes. We ALL need to know about it!
