BHEC understands and recognizes that Black health and Black life are intricately connected. Black communities continue to face multiple barriers when accessing health care with Black health being impacted by the persistence of anti-Black racism in the forms of social marginalization, health inequities, prejudice in health care rooted in the unique legacy of enslavement and colonization. In our research, BHEC draws on the long histories of community and academic scholarship and resistance to explore and expand scholarship on Black health and the anti-Black racism experienced by Black people and communities in the health care system.
