Race, Racism, and Racial Equity Symposium: "Scholarship Addressing the Duel Pandemic of Racism and COVID-19"

April 19 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


April 19 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Our sixth event in the R3 series, “Scholarship Addressing the Dual Pandemic of Racism and COVID-19, will take place on April 19, 1:30-3 p.m.

The event will focus on the fact that the United States has been in a crisis – a pandemic caused by racism – since our very beginnings. COVID-19 has highlighted these racial inequities. While the pandemic is an international experience that touches everyone, the impact of COVID-19—physically, emotionally, and economically—is not equal. Scholars from UNC’s Schools of Education, Public Health, and Social Work will present research on the coping strategies of Black women essential workers and their experiences with racism during the COVID-19 pandemic, advancing equity through public health critical race practice, and Black parent perspectives of school experiences during COVID.
