Come and join us for a 30-minute question and answer session with the executive producer of the documentary, Black Men in White Coats. Get a chance to ask all your questions about the movie!
I’m a Black male doctor. I've sat in class while my professor used the 'N' word. I've been mistaken for hospital transport rather than the doctor that I am. I've been approached by police so they could search my friend’s trunk unwarranted. I've been told that I dress funny, speak poorly, and would never be successful. If these things happen to me as a doctor, what happens to other Black men? What will happen to my sons? This is why I started Black Men in White Coats and why I decided to produce the film Black Men in White Coats. I've been determined to change the way society views black men and perhaps more important, Black boys. When news broke that the number of Black men going to medical school was declining, I was inspired to take action and started Black Men in White Coats. We’ve had much success so far, however, we understand that things won't change unless our message is spread to the masses. That is why we're making this feature-length film. We want all Americans to understand the crisis at-hand and move to action. Only 2% of American doctors are black men!
