What Can We Learn From the Maternal Death of Krystal Anderson?

We have lost another mother. A Black mother.

Her husband lost a wife.

The NFL lost a former cheerleader.

The University of Richmond lost an alumnus.

The software engineer industry lost a colleague.

AKA lost a soror.

Her cause of death? Sepsis. She lost a previous baby at 21 weeks because of a stillbirth. And then had another stillbirth three days before she died.

Of course, I’m numb.

And sad.

And angry.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

But yet, it is.
