About the film

The documentary from executive producer, Oprah Winfrey, chronicles how people of color suffer from systemically substandard healthcare in the United States and how COVID-19 has exposed the tragic consequences of this inequity.

Panel discussion

Dr. Carlos Smith, Director, Diversity, Ethics and Inclusion at the VCU School of Dentistry, will lead a panel discussion following the film. Light refreshments and fellowship will be available immediately following the program.
