Black Men in White Coats - Documentary film by Dr. Dale Okorodudu Online

Black Men in White Coats – a documentary film

80 minutes long

Fewer black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978 and black men have the lowest life expectancy in the United States. With only 2% of American doctors being black men, this comes as no surprise. This documentary dissects the systemic barriers preventing black men from becoming medical doctors and the consequences for society at large.

The film can be viewed at any time from Monday, February 15th through Friday, February 19th using this link: https://www.indiescreening.com/screenings/2021-02-15/black-men-in-white-coats-02152021-1.

The library will also be hosting a panel discussion about the film featuring local black medical professionals on Friday the 19th at 6 pm. Registration is required—to join the discussion, register here: https://calendar.libraryweb.org/event/7497656.

As part of this program, the Central Library will be featuring superhero posters of local black medical professionals in our windows in the month of February. Stop by to see them!

Black Men in White Coats is founded and executive produced by Dr. Dale Okorodudu and directed by Micah Autry. More information can be found at https://www.blackmeninwhitecoats.org
