This week I spoke with Representative Lauren Underwood (pictured above) about how the federal government can tackle the Black maternal health crisis. Dr. Rachel Hardeman of the Center for Antiracism Research for Health Equity explained why she focuses on the impact of racism on health. Farai shared the latest findings that Black women are over three times more likely to die of Covid-19 than white men or Asian men in two U.S. states. And we learned about Dr. Justina Ford, a Black doctor in the 1900s who served patients of color in Denver. On Sippin’ the Political Tea, Farai and Errin Haines of the 19th welcomed journalist Fernanda Santos to talk about the state of things at the U.S.-Mexico border, and the possibilities of immigration reform under the Biden-Harris administration.
