COVID-19: AFRICAN AMERICANS & RACIAL HEALTH DISPARITIES PART 2
In the video below, Sundiata Keita Cha-Jua, Ph.D. provides a hard-hitting and thorough analysis of the racial disparities related to COVID-19 in this virtual discussion entitled The State of Georgia and Genocide. He explains the grossly disproportionate impact of COVID-19 infections and deaths among African Americans while highlighting the social conditions of anti-Black racial oppression, which makes African Americans especially vulnerable to COVID-19. Dr. Cha-Jua highlights the leading role the state of Georgia played in lifting safety restrictions, targeting businesses where African Americans gather, and the relationship between the coronavirus spread, white terrorism, and Black resistance.
