COVID-19 and the Disproportionate Burden on Black Church Communities, with Dr. Keri Day

 

Dr. Keri Day, Associate Professor of Constructive Theology and African American Religion at Princeton Theological Seminary, sits down with Debo and David to discuss the disproportionate effect that COVID-19 has had on black people, its roots in inequality, and what we can do about it.

Dr. Day also talks about the disproportionate rate that COVID-19 has affected black people. Why is this happening? Dr. Day goes into detail about the top reasons for this: inequality and inequity. Low income African American communities are deeply disenfranchised, not just politically but economically. Is this pandemic the latest example of the systemic inequalities faced by black Americans in the United States, and if so, is this an opportunity for us to do something different and correct ourselves?
