STAND AGAINST RACISM: Film Screening – The Power to Heal

April 25 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

In partnership with AARP, MAHEC will host a Lunch-n-Learn on the documentary film “The Power to Heal.” Discussion to follow.

*Bring your own lunch. MAHEC will provide beverages.*

The Power to Heal: Before Medicare was introduced in 1965, disparities in access to hospital care were dramatic. Fewer than 50% of the nation’s hospitals served black and white patients equally. The South was especially challenged, as one in three hospitals would not admit African-Americans even for emergencies. But by using the carrot of Medicare dollars, the federal government virtually ended the practice of racially segregated health care. The powerful book and documentary THE POWER TO HEAL illustrates how Movement leaders and grass-roots volunteers pressed and worked with the federal government to achieve justice and fairness for African-Americans.
