I thought the book was very educational. Unfortunately, it was a difficult read at times. Dry in a number of places. At times, I did not know which direction the author was going. Personally, I would recommend Medical Apartheid by Harriet A. Washington which is a much better read. However, this book should not be overlooked and I do recommend it for anyone who is interested in learning more about the subject of medical racism.
An essential read for anyone who believes "cultural comoentancy" or other multicultural measure as sufficient to address anti black medical racism. This should give pause to those who defend universal convergence as in itself health justice.. if you exposing more black folk to racist health care that isnt social justice.

Provides and summarizes lengthy and expansive research on the historical, social, and biological context of medical racism. Provides enough research and conclusions. Though lengthy and at times repetitive, I recommend this book for any aspiring or current provider. I wish the book, however, had added more examples of successful, pragmatic changes in the past that can serve as models for institutional change and racial/cultural education reform.
