About The Film

“Why is it easier to visualize a Black man in an orange jumpsuit than it is in a white coat?” Fed up with the lack of diversity among doctors, a medical doctor sets out to explore why only 2% of American doctors are Black men and what that means for society. This 80-minute documentary dissects the systemic barriers preventing Black men from becoming medical doctors and the consequences on society at large. View trailer!
