Community Stories


About the project

Black communities experience inequities in access to health care, utilization of health care services, and health outcomes. The Community Stories: Experiences of Anti-Black Racism in the Canadian Health Care System research project aims to provide a deeper understanding of the experiences of Black people with anti-Black racism in the Canadian health care system and strategies of resistance and wellness. 


The project investigates:

  • The experiences of Black people in the Canadian health care system, and

  • The strategies of resistance and wellness Black people use while navigating the health care system.


The Black Health Education Collaborative has partnered with videographer Moses Latigo of Kigaana Productions to produce a documentary and share the participants’ experiences using digital storytelling. Results from the study will be used in educational resources on anti-Black racism and Black health including a video series and documentary that is in production.
