This was such an important spotlight on a long smoldering problem in medicine. But we must also be careful to go further with a more intersectional analysis. In the beginning, they claim black men have the lowest life expectancy of any group, but the group with the lowest life expectancy in America are black trans women. We must make sure that our focus on racism does not overshadow sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other axes of oppression causing this problem.
This film is one that all educators, community members, parents, healthcare worker, should take the time to watch! We all have a role to play in getting more “Black Men in White Coats!”
An eye-opening documentary. A must watch for every educator and college/career counselor to promote to their districts as we help our Black male students select future career pathways. I was emotional seeing so many Black male ACCOMPLISHED doctors on screen and deeply touched by the awareness of Tripp, at such a young age, that he will have to face racism throughout his journey to become a medical doctor. Thank you Dr. Dale and all the other participants for starting this movement and transforming our society!
Thank you for taking this issue on and sheading light! There is such a mistrust in medicine. We must prepare our future in the medical field now. Let's see more of us and increase the trust!
Outstanding documentary that highlights the reality of racial disparity in medicine that is especially impacting black men. A must watch. This should be played in all public schools.
