Event description

Description

Two giants in their field explore the complicated history and ramifications of our county’s race-based health inequalities. Join Mary Travis Bassett, former NYC Commissioner of Health and currently Director of the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, and Harriet Washington, author of the award-winning Medical Apartheid and, most recently, A Terrible Thing to Waste: Environmental Racism and Its Assault of the American Mind, for their insights, analysis, and thoughts on righting centuries of wrongs.

This program is presented as part of Brooklyn Historical Society's 400 Years of Inequality: Slavery, Race, and Our Unresolved History initiative, an immersive series of of reflection, analysis, and discussion commemorating our nation's unresolved history of slavery.
