The Color of Care

Monday, October 3, 2022 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Film Event and Panel Discussion

The Color of Care chronicles how people of color suffer from systemically substandard health care. COVID-19 exposed what they have long understood and lived: They do not receive the same level of care.

Produced by Oprah's HARPO Productions and directed by Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning director Yance Ford, the film traces the origins of racial health disparities to practices that began during slavery and continue today.

Using moving personal testimony, expert interviews and disturbing data, the film reveals the impact of racism on health, serving as an urgent public health call to action on what must be done to save lives and improve care for all.
