Black Health: Medical Racism, Resistance and Wellness (CBFS)

Thursday 2 September - Friday 3 September 2021

Join a conversation with four scholars whose work examines the long history of medical racism and unequal access to quality medical care.

 

The pandemic has laid bare longstanding racial inequities in health care. Join us for the opening panel of the 2021-2022 CBFS season on Black Health – Medical Racism, Resistance and Wellness. The conversation brings together four scholars whose work examines the long history of medical racism and unequal access to quality medical care including mental health care; the racialized political economy of public hospitals; and the extensive struggles Black people have waged to challenge health care inequalities and build strategies for their own wellness.

Join us for a conversation with Deirdre Cooper Owens, Medical Bondage: Race, Gender, and the Origins of American Gynecology; Martin Summers, Madness in the City of Magnificent Intentions: A History of Race and Mental Illness in the Nation’s Capital; Stephanie Evans, Black Women’s Yoga History: Memoirs of Inner Peace; and George Aumoithe, a scholar of U.S. healthcare and the political economy of New York hospitals.
