The truth is out: racism damages the health of Black people. Racism damages our mental health and well-being. Racism damages our physical health. The Espresso Talk Team is joined by Professor Sherman James, an epidemiologist who has studied the effect of racism--and high effort coping behavior to deal with racism--on Black bodies. The result? Chronic, illness, acute disease, or even early death. Professor James discusses how this happens, how we can identify it, and how we can prevent it. Join us for this uncommon conversation. Learn how to protect your health!
