About the Event
Many have called COVID-19 “the great equalizer” because it transcends income, fame, geography, and age. However, Black and Latinx communities have been disproportionately affected - an order of magnitude more likely to become infected and twice as likely to die than their white neighbors. Why? Former executive editor at Essence Magazine and New York Times Magazine contributor Linda Villarosa researches race, health, and inequality. As the last program in our limited series exploring the impact of COVID-19, Linda will explore the systems at play that are making communities of color so hard hit by the virus.
