Abstract

This advocacy project aims to spread awareness about postpartum depression in Black women by sharing the stories, or oral histories, of Black women through social media content. Social media is a very popular broadcasting tool today and is easily shared and often viewed by thousands of people, if not millions. Platforms such as Tiktok Instagram, Spotify and YouTube provide spaces for scholarship to be shared widely. While not a traditional peerreviewed outlet, it has the potential to be seen and shared with many more people than a traditional scholarly project. This poster shares the scope of the overall project, reach of each social media outlet, and a brief overview of the oral histories shared. (Faculty Sponsor: Dr. Catherine Dutton)
