I had no idea there are fewer black males applying to med school now then in the past. Though parts of the film are sad and overwhelming, I was left inspired to do more.
Very well documented that highlighted what african-american men and women face in medicine. I would love to be apart of this
We all have a story to tell. We share so many similarities related to racism, and sadly it continues. From the time we enter medical school, we are basically still alone. We need mentors and support groups to maintain our students. So many are still being denied because of admissions committees that are all white. Great documentary. United we stand!
This documentary raises a lot of questions, starting with how education is provided in US starting with very young ages till college and graduate school. Encouraging children of color to pursue a medical career might not be enough, encouraging and supporting them from a young age by providing equitable access to education and training and equitable access to opportunities is the key. Reaching out to communities and changing the culture and perspective regarding education is also important. We need to be intentional about getting minorities voices heard and minorities included in all aspects of society. Thank you for this amazing documentary.
This was an inspirational and informative documentary and very well done! It was an encouragement in my own work as I try to bring representation into images and examples used in continuing medical education--not only important for the next generation of young doctors but our current landscape.
