The Deadliest Disease in America Screening


Cinema Village

Dates: September 10th- 16th

Location: Cinema Village

The Deadliest Disease in America, a documentary film produced and directed by Crystal R. Emery, traces the history of racism in American healthcare, beginning with the brutal medical experimentation that enslaved people were forced to undergo. As this story unfolds over our nation’s history, the very same inequalities and biases continue to plague our healthcare system, creating disparities in the quality of care that Black, Brown, and Indigenous people receive. Interwoven with these expert testimonies are the personal stories of patients who have been victimized by healthcare inequities, including the filmmaker’s own experiences as a quadriplegic African American woman.
