This was a fantastic documentary. As a Black male physician the severity and complexity related to lack of Black men in medicine is not new information. Kudos to Dr. Okorodudu and his colleagues for this film and the greater of initiatives of embracing the dignity and humanity of young Black boys and showing them what's possible.
This movie made me smile, laugh, and cry. As a black female physician, I fully support this movement and will do my part to increase the percentage of black men in medicine. Thank you, Dr. Okorodudu and team for such a passionate and informative film! Well done!
This is an excellent production and movement. Explains many aspects of which I was unaware/ ignorant. I recently read "The Tyranny of Merit" by Michael Sandel which tries to decipher and analyze "merit" in the context of opportunity. Hard work and intelligence are not enough to compete in a system where everyone is perceived to have opportunity but in which some (e.g. black men) start behind- 100 yards behind the starting line in a 100 yard sprint.
The segment of the follow up call to Trip was heart rending but demonstrates that the follow up and continued support of the children.
Excellent presentation of an important issue to help reduce health disparities among people of color
Powerful content, especially the bullied young man c. 01:15:00--one of the most powerful images I've encountered in over a year of examining my own white privilege. Would be nice to have a bulleted summary of the barriers to entry.
