Coronavirus Conversations: Impact of COVID on Black Americans & Other People of Color
September 11, 2020 • 2:00 PM • Virtual
Across the country, the toll of the COVID pandemic on black and brown people has been devastating, as a disproportionate number of them are sickened, seriously injured, and killed by the virus. Conditions in the places where black and brown people tend to live, learn and work; their relative socio-economic status; the cumulative effects of racism on black and brown people (otherwise known as "weathering"); and other factors have directly contributed to this catastrophe.
