Khiara Bridges is a professor at Boston University who studied pregnant women applying to Medicaid. All of them poor, most of them of color. Her research found a system "fundamentally flawed by design," in which women relying on government assistance to have a child were required, before ever seeing a health practitioner, to be "informationally canvassed" via coerced consultations that ask the kinds of degrading questions that white, privately insured women would never be asked at a healthcare facility.

On Monday night, Reclaim HLS hosted a critical race theory teach-in by Khiara Bridges, an associate law professor at Boston University, modeled on how she teaches first-year criminal law. "We're not pretending that we're disconnected from the real world," Bridges said as she opened her presentation, alluding to one of the motivating goals of critical race theory: to link activism with academics. The event took place in the student lounge of Wasserstein Hall, which members of Reclaim HLS have occupied for the last month to create opportunities for learning and discussion, and to bring visibility to their demands.
Bridges didn't teach her class like a typical 1L criminal-law course. Using an example from case law, involving a Native American couple charged with negligent homicide of their baby, she asked her audience how race and level of education should bear on the outcome of the case.
Bridges will be a visiting professor at HLS next year, teaching courses on critical race theory, reproductive justice, and criminal law. Her appointment appears to satisfy one of Reclaim HLS's demands: that the school add a visiting professor in critical race theory by this fall.

But as Khiara Bridges, an associate professor of law and anthropology at Boston University said to me in a recent interview for a story I'm writing, "In my work with women of color, they receive a lower quality of care regardless of class and insurance type, so we have to begin to query where bias begins to come into play here.
