Why Black Americans live sicker and die quicker

There is no question that racism leads to health disparities among Black Americans. Linda Villarosa is a journalism professor at the City University of New York, a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine and a contributor to The 1619 Project. She joins guest host Courtney Collins to discuss the reasons behind why Black people are dying sooner and have worse health outcomes than their white counterparts. Her book is “Under the Skin: The Hidden Toll of Racism on American Lives and on the Health of Our Nation.”
