The New York Times - Conception II
Debra Johnson describes her hopes and fears about raising a black son in Chicago.
Perhaps Debra's is a perspective you haven't considered before? Perhaps her fear is one you live with every day? It's truly shameful that this narrative so normal for some and completely unthinkable for others. Each film in this six-part-series discusses a different aspect of parenthood.
