Histories of Harm: Race, Medicine, and COVID-19 in Historical Perspective
Carolyn Roberts, Assistant Professor of the History of Science and Medicine and African Studies at Yale University will join us to deliver a keynote lecture on the history of the tumultuous relationship of Black people with American medicine. The crisis caused by COVID-19 offers a critical opportunity to consider the historical legacies that have shaped health disparities. In this talk we will discuss how the history of slavery, the slave trade, and segregation caused medical harm and distrust. Yet, this is also a history of resilience and resistance. Black people then, and now, have utilized their knowledge, resources, and ingenuity to endure.
