This documentary was truly inspiring and has sparked a fire on the inside of me to continue the fight to address these disparities - black lives depend on it
I watched this documentary with my 2 boys and we were riveted to the screen. Very though provoking and inspiring, which let to some interesting discussions. This is an amazing undertaking and I applaud you for making black men in white coats more visible and tangible to our youth.
This was an awesome documentary. So much information I did not know. There seems to be so many odds against the black youth today. Having direction, hope, and backing will hopefully make a huge difference. I am so glad I was invited to watch this!
All need to see this this will take everyone working together for the solution!
Recognition that medical schools, and specifically their admissions committee members, are the gatekeepers and determiners of the makeup of the country’s doctors is an important aspect of effecting change. I like the point counter-point barbershop discussion and concur with the need for community support to remove negative stereotypes against higher education. I partially reject the idea of “if you can’t see it, you can’t be it”. That mindset negates personal innovation and drive. As a multi-ethnic white woman who applied to medical school in the late 1970s, I had never met a female physician of any ethnicity or race. I didn’t meet a woman physician until third year of medical school. I didn’t see it, but became it. Regardless, as a medical school admissions committee member, I recognize and support the need for pipeline efforts to encourage and admit black men to medical school and will continue to support and further grow such measures at our school.
