On Thursday, October 20, the BLI is hosting an in person screening of The Color of Care, followed by a conversation where we will discuss the film and talk about how we can mobilize to combat racism in healthcare with community leaders from New Detroit (Rebecca Irby), Packard Health (Oryanna Diem), and the School of Public Health (Becky Woolf).

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 Ms. 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.
