The Color of Care film screening & panel discussion:
Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022
Join us for the screening of this important film and a panel discussion following it, about how we can address these issues in our community.
The Color of Care chronicles how people of color suffer from systemically substandard healthcare. COVID-19 exposed what they have long understood and lived: they do not receive the same level of care. Produced by Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and directed by Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning director Yance Ford, the film traces the origins of racial health disparities to practices that began during slavery and continue today. Using moving personal testimony, expert interviews, and disturbing data the film reveals the impact of racism on health, serving as an urgent warning of what must be done to save lives.
Join us for a screening of the film followed by a panel discussion with local medical professionals. Help enact positive change.
