Syllabus: A History of Anti-Black Racism in Medicine
16-week syllabus of readings assembled by Antoine S. Johnson, Elise A. Mitchell, and Ayah Nuriddin. As the developers of the syllabus explain: "The ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is revealing longstanding American health and healthcare disparities yet to be addressed. While some have described COVID as a 'great equalizer,' policing, public health, medical care, and public funds are revealing otherwise. COVID-19’s impact on Black people in general and poor and working-class Black people in particular, has elucidated this country’s long disparate treatment of Black people and centuries-long neglect of Black health concerns. We hope this syllabus offers insight into those historical legacies, while simultaneously paving way for equitable health for all underrepresented populations."
