I hope that we can come together in the community and help our youth and show them that they can achieve their goal to become a doctor. I think if they offered more free after school programs with prominent leaders of color, in turn, we would have better percentage of young black medical professionals. The documentary really touched my heart especially because I'm a mother of a young black male, and I hope there will be more programs or conventions that I could take my son to in the future.
This documentary helped me view this issue through a different lens. They did a nice job of explaining a problem and offering solutions!!
As an educator, I am grateful for this movement. Our Black children need the encouragement and support and push to strive for educational pursuits when obstacles are steadily being put in their way. Overcoming barriers must be intentional. Hope can allow intentional efforts. I am inspired by this movement. My prayer is that many will be challenged to pursue careers in the medical field especially becoming the best doctor they can be.
Not only was this film well done but the content it presented could not have been more timely and relevant to our current global climate. It started a much needed conversation that I pray continues for generations to come.
This is documentary was beyond words. Definitely a call to action and makes me want to answer. We NEED to answer. This was shared throughout an medical system that has approximately 44% African Americans in their workforce in a predominantly black city where multiple medical schools are located. If this does not spark a discussion to change the narrative I'm not sure what could. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
