The Deadliest Disease in America

2022, 66mins, NR
Director: Crystal Emery

As a quadriplegic African American, director Crystal R. Emery is an inspiration. Her film traces the history of racism in American healthcare, beginning with the brutal medical experimentation that enslaved people were forced to undergo. As this story unfolds over our nation’s history, the very same inequalities and biases continue to plague our healthcare system, creating disparities in the quality of care that Black, Brown, and Indigenous people receive. She interweaves her own story with expert testimony and other personal stories of people victimized by healthcare inequities.
