Why are African-Americans and other minority groups suffering disproportionately? This talk examines inequalities highlighted in COVID-19

About this Event

COVID19 is disproportionately affecting minorities in developed countries, while forcing millions in the global south to go without food and shelter. This talk explores how the current pandemic is highlighting existing inequalities around the world, both in the Global North and South.

States and cities across the US are reporting that African Americans are significantly over-represented in the coronavirus outbreak, why is this happening? While medical professionals assure that the coronavirus does not discriminate, early data suggests minorities are far greater at risk.

At the same time, millions in the global south are going without work, and subsequently struggling to provide basic necessities. The modern welfare state is ramping up in the North, providing bailout and subsidy programs, while in the South, billions are forced to fend for themselves.

This talk explore inequalities that are coming to the forefront in the midst of the world’s first pandemic in the information age.
