COVID & Black

I love Black people. Unapologetically and without conditions. I desire to understand and interpret societal issues that directly impact our livelihood. With the abundance of COVID-19 news, it is crucial to be critical consumers of information because while being informed is good, being misinformed can be harmful. It is essential to acknowledge that mainstream media is only now, too little and too late at this point, beginning to talk about the racial and economic disparities apparent in the pandemic. For this reason, I have compiled this syllabus to specifically address the unique impact that COVID-19 has on Black Americans.
