Antiracist Public Health Week Day 5: Documentary Screening & Discussion: "Cooked: Survival by Zipcode"
Description: Join us for day 5 of our Antiracist Public Health Week.
We will be watching the documentary "Cooked: Survival by Zipcode" which "tells the story of the tragic 1995 Chicago heatwave, the most traumatic in U.S. history, in which 739 citizens died over the course of just a single week, most of them poor, elderly, and African American."

Want to watch the documentary on your own and join us for the discussion portion only? Join the zoom link at 5PM.

Following the screening, we will be drawing the connections between the Chicago 1995 heat wave and COVID-19 wreaking havoc on the same structurally oppressed Black populations of South Chicago.

Please refer to page 50 of Dr. Kendi's journal for our community conversation: "What antiracist ideas could make these inequities seem abnormal? What antiracist policies could reduce or eliminate these inequities?"

Facilitators: Sahand Golestan, MPH (WC4BL Representative) & George Duncan (Vice-President of SNMA)
