As we embark upon the dreadful one year anniversary of the shut down as a result of Covid-19 we have witnessed black and brown communities disproportionately impacted by Covid-19 leaving many throughout these historically and systematically discarded communities to feel as though they have once again been forgotten and left behind by their country.
MBK Cambridge hosted a panel discussion on Medical Racism with a goal of supporting members of Cambridge Greater Boston communities to learn more about how to address our collective anxieties with the distribution of the vaccine as a result of historically adverse experiences that have triggered many of us to take stock of our mental health needs amongst a host other matters during these unique and unprecedented times.
Public Square is an MBK Tv show created to lift up the importance of civic education and enngagement. The square is a safe place to engage in honest conversations about issues and events that shape and mold the world we live in. The January panel conversation, "Radical King" moderatoed by the brilliant Tony Clark touches on MLK's thoughts around education, housing, economic empowerment and race relations in America. Our panelists views will open your eyes, minds and hearts.
