Words can’t express how much this documentary has opened my eyes. It did a very good job at balancing the facts and opening the floor to conversation. I loved the scenes shot at the barber shop because they were all able to have an open discussion in what they think has gone wrong. In adding the statistics throughout the documentary, the film was able to interlace facts with true stories. Trip, in particular, was heartwarming to watch, and I have no doubt in my mind that he’ll make it big in the health field. To everyone involved in the efforts, thank you. You’ve really gone out of your way to show how deep in crisis our country is in. We definitely have to learn better and do better.
Excellent film. Link shared with me from someone in my church in DSM IA. I was very impressed by the film and find it rings true to what I've learned re recruitment issues; the depth of the deficit presented in the film however was news to me. I commend you on your work and it's presentation. It's an excellent call to get to work. Thank you.
Absolutely amazing! As an educator/school counselor, I was truly inspired after watching this film. I am ready to do what I can to help end this disparity in the field of medicine. Way too often, I have watched many young, prospective doctors in my classroom succumb to the social ills of their communities for many of the reasons that were discussed in this film. I heard the call to action and I am ready. We start our unit on career exploration next week and I ready to light some fuses and mold some minds.
Thank you for the opportunity to watch this powerful work.
I am happy this program will motivate a lot of young black men to follow the profession. It is rewarding to walk into a room as a black physician and see a patient’s face light up because they did not expect to see a black doctor. Great job guys and keep up the good work. I do my best to encourage and mentor the few young black patients I have to be better. My graduating medical school class had 4 black men and 9 black women out of a total of 29 blacks in the first year class of 198 students. We need black doctors to take care of our population.
