Description
A look at the health care disparities between white and black communities. Three African American women who work in policy disciplines talk about how factors such as historic dehumanization, increased stress and anxiety, and higher rates of pre-existing health issues have placed black communities at elevated risk of suffering the worst effects of Covid-19. Produced as part of the series A Mask on the Mountains: Dimensions of Covid-19 in Appalachia, a project of Appalshop's Appalachian Media Institute.
