Abstract:

All My Babies (1952) was selected in 2002 by the Library of Congress as a "culturally, historically, and artistically significant work" for permanent preservation in the National Film Registry. This beautiful film is the story of "Miss Mary" Coley, an African-American midwife more than half a century ago in rural Georgia. Its production sponsored by the Georgia Department of Public Health as a demonstration film for illiterate "granny" midwives, All My Babies quickly transcended its initial purpose. It was used around the world by UNESCO and has become an enduring classic of nonfiction film. All My Babies was written, produced, and directed by George C. Stoney in close collaboration with Mrs. Coley as well as with the local public health doctors and nurses and shows the preparation for and home delivery of healthy babies in both relatively good and bad rural conditions among black families at that time. The film is in addition both a deeply respectful portrait of "Miss Mary," who is revealed as an inspiring human being, and a record of the actual living conditions of her patients.
