What if segregation didn’t actually end? And instead, American cities have become drawn along racial lines – exacerbating economic issues AND fueling the COVID pandemic? Join our hosts Justin Beck, Catherine Delcin and Deepti Pahwa, as they speak with Dr. Lawrence T. Brown, founder and director of the Black Butterfly Project. As a group, they’ll discuss the policies, practices, systems and budgets discussed in his new book, “The Black Butterfly: The Harmful Politics of Race and Space in America”. We’ll also hear from Dr. Brian Smedley, an advocate of health equity, whose work is creating opportunities for people of color and undoing the health consequences of racism. As always, we’ll talk about how to help our local health departments – and encourage innovation and technology integration – all while remaining empathetic, plus keeping an eye toward health equity for all.
