What a great docu-film. I've anticipated watching this for some time now. It was a reminder of not only the disparities in access to careers in medicine for black men, but the perpetual challenges they are faced with even when they have matriculated all the way up to residency. I had no idea people could be 'removed' from residency. Or the long-term impacts that childhood influences had on boys at such a young age. I beleive that this movement that Dr. Dale has started will shift the landscape of medicine for our community . . . it appears that it already has begun to do so.
Very eye opening even as a black female heath care provider. I am hopeful that if we keep going in this direction many more young black men will decide to dedicate themselves to the field of medicine. We desperately need them to do so!
Makes you think about all possibilities of why black men don’t get in or stay in med school. We need change. Thanks for bringing attention to the problem.
This is a must see for all parents, for all K-12 and higher education professionals, and for anyone who wants to learn about efforts to address systemic racism. Thank you for sharing your stories.
The entire documentary is well done in that it presents compelling nation-wide information and illustrates main points through narrative. The stories of each of the featured speakers were interesting, relatable, and makes me feel inspired to do more. I work in the Health Professions Education field and we have prioritized diversity across the curriculum. I can see this film being used in many of our classes, but especially those around higher education practices, and specifically admissions & funding!
