BLACK MAN IN A WHITE COAT A Doctor's Reflections on Race and Medicine

by | Read by Corey Allen

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Damon Tweedy, a black physician and psychiatry professor, analyzes both the poorer health status of blacks in America and his own professional journey. Tweedy is a thoughtful, humble guy with working-class roots, and narrator Corey Allen adeptly portrays those qualities with his rich voice and excellent pacing. Tweedy went to Duke Medical School, one of a handful of black students among wealthy classmates with Ivy League backgrounds. His educational and medical experiences solidify his view that being black is bad for your health. A professor asks him to fix the lights in class; an elderly white patient refuses a black doctor; a woman with fibroid tumors has no insurance despite having both a husband and a job. Tweedy is full of infuriating stories but leaves room for hope, and Allen infuses that essential quality into his performance. A.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
