As part of the Georgia Health Policy Center’s yearlong 25th anniversary celebration, we invite you join us for the next event in the speaker and film series, Achieving Racial Health Equity: Tackling Structural & Historic Barriers with author Douglas Blackmon
An excerpt from the award-winning documentary Slavery by Another Name lays the groundwork to examine how racism contributes to health inequities that persist today and how to begin to take steps toward closing those gaps.
The event features Pulitzer Prize–winning author and documentary filmmaker Douglas Blackmon. An excerpt from his PBS documentary, Slavery by Another Name, will set the stage for discussion by examining how structural racism persisted deep into the 20th century, manifesting as trauma and social and health inequities generations later. Panelists will then connect the dots to today’s public health issues and offer systemic strategies for moving toward equity. Khadijah Ameen, co-founder of BLKHLTH, and Arlene Parker-Goldson, just health director of Partnership for Southern Equity, will join Blackmon for a panel discussion.
Support provided by the Claudia Lacson Fund.
A reception will follow. This event is free and open to the public.
