The Health of Black Women

Seven Young Black Women Photographed Near Missouri - 1890s

Health care is a controversial topic in American politics. One reason for this is because of the utter lack of health equity in the United States. One minority group facing major disparities in health care is black women. Black women have faced health disparities for decades and this website is an attempt to try and navigate those disparities, why they exist, and what they say about the value of black women in America.
