African Americans make up 13.4 percent of the U.S. population but they represent approximately 23 percent of COVID-19 deaths. Black Americans are three times more likely to die from infection than whites. They are also disproportionately represented among those living in poverty; those engaged in “essential” services placing them at higher risk of contagion; and those afflicted by preexisting conditions such as Diabetes and Hypertension. This panel examines variations of experience among African Americans and interrogates the relationship between racial inequality and public health.

Panel discussion featuring Ta-Nehisi Coates, Frederick Wherry, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, Patrick Sharkey, and Kathryn Edin. Free. Register for Zoom access.
