Why Black Menace?
Because Black Americans are dying of Covid-19 at three times the rate of white people.
New figures compiled by the non-partisan APM Research Lab under the title Color of Coronavirus provide further evidence of the staggering divide in the Covid-19 death rate between black Americans and the rest of the nation.
Across the country, African Americans have died at a rate of 50.3 per 100,000 people, compared with 20.7 for whites, 22.9 for Latinos and 22.7 for Asian Americans.
A new digital video series, “Black Menace: Survival Steps to Beat COVID-19 for African Americans,” will be streamed live to educate African Americans and create awareness. Register now to watch the live stream.
