"Black Women Don’t Reap the Same Health Benefits from Delaying Motherhood as Whites" - Slate. 01/20/2016.

Over the past two decades, the research of Arline Geronimus has shown that black women in America do not realize the same health or human capital benefits of delaying motherhood as white women do. That is, black women tend to suffer health declines at much younger ages ("weathering") and they "do not enjoy the same access to advanced education or career security" as white women. This piece finds support for Geronimus's "weathering" hypothesis in a new study on infant mortality by race.
