LEGACY A Black Physician Reckons with Racism in Medicine

by | Read by Uché Blackstock

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Author and narrator Uché Blackstock sounds authentic and urgent in this plea for medical practitioners to combat the racism that still exists in all aspects of healthcare. Dr. Blackstock virtually grew up in the hospital where her mother practiced as a kidney doctor. Blackstock is appalled at the gaping systemic disparities she observed during her stints at a well-resourced private hospital and at a chaotic public one that serves mainly uninsured patients. She fights for change from the inside, trying to broaden diversity and educate her fellow doctors but is stymied at every turn. The defeat is clear in her voice. Threaded through the audiobook is Blackstock's personal story; the loss of her mother at age 47 from leukemia was devastating. A.B. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2024]
