This weekend on Matter of Fact, Soledad O’Brien sits down with maternal health advocate Christy Turlington Burns and OBGYN Dr. Lisa Gittens-Williams to discuss the crisis of maternal mortality in America. More women die in the United States from childbirth than any other industrialized country. What solutions do they see? Then, correspondent Jessica Gomez visits a school near Dallas, Texas that could be the blueprint for future schools. Their infrastructure was specifically designed to protect students from potential school shooters. And, “Enemies in Love” author Alexis Clark joins Soledad to how she uncovered the story of an African-American nurse, a German prisoner of war and an unlikely romance in an Arizona POW camp during WWII. Plus, Soledad gives a history lesson on Kanye West’s recent controversial comments.
