Documentary Screening and Discussion: Cooked: Survival by ZIP Code
Friday, April 9, 2021
Day 5 of Antiracist Public Health Week will be watching the documentary "Cooked: Survival by ZIP Code" which "tells the story of the tragic 1995 Chicago heatwave, the most traumatic in U.S. history, in which 739 citizens died over the course of just a single week, most of them poor, elderly, and African American."
Want to watch the documentary on your own and join us for the discussion portion only? Join the zoom link at 5PM.
Following the screening, we will be drawing the connections between the Chicago 1995 heat wave and COVID-19 wreaking havoc on the same structurally oppressed Black populations of South Chicago.
