Black Men in White Coats Documentary Streaming May 24-27

Thursday, May 27, 2021
Linda Sokol Francis Brookfield Library

Event Details

This documentary dissects the systemic barriers preventing black men from becoming medical doctors and the consequences on society at large. Health care accounts for nearly 20% of the United State's GDP and a significant portion of that is driven by disparities in a system that lacks diverse physicians.

Read along with the Non-Fiction and Girls Night Out Book Discussion Groups and watch the documentary on your own schedule. 
Books available at the library for curbside or inside pickup: Black Man in a White Coat by Damon Tweedy, The Pact: Three Young Men Make a Promise and Fulfill a Dream, by doctors Sampson Davis, Rameck Hunt, and George Jenkins. We Beat the Street: How a Friendship Pact Led to Success (the YA version of The Pact) by doctors Davis, Hunt and Jenkins.
