A recent study found that disproportionately Black counties, a 22% share of the population, account for over half of the COVID-19 cases in the United States and almost 60% of the deaths. The pandemic’s exposure of deep gaps in overall health and health care access for Black Americans, as well as the disparate impact of the historic economic fallout, has led to increased focus on the intersections of race, class, and gender inequalities within the U.S. Join us for a conversation exploring the impact of COVID-19 on Black communities and examining how we can rebuild and better protect our communities, with faculty and alumni experts. Hosted by the Black 校友 of Georgetown and the 乔治城大学校友会, this discussion will be moderated by Soyica Diggs Colbert (C’01), Vice Dean of 学院 and Director of Arts Initiatives & Professor of African American Studies and Performing Arts.
