The Color of Care: Film Screening and Community Discussion
December 11, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Connecticut Historical Society Hartford, CT United States
Join us for a showing of THE COLOR OF CARE. This film chronicles how people of color suffer from systemically substandard healthcare. It was produced by Harpo Productions from executive producers Oprah Winfrey, Terry Wood and Catherine Cyr, and directed by OSCAR®-nominated and Emmy® award winning director Yance Ford, with producer Kate Bolger.
THE COLOR OF CARE traces the origins of racial health disparities to practices that began during slavery in the U.S. and continue today. Using personal testimony, expert interviews, and disturbing data, the film reveals the impact of racism on health, serving as an urgent warning of what must be done to save lives.
After the film, we will have a facilitated discussion about the film.
