Geography is Destiny!
Thursday January 28, 12 - 1:30 PM via Zoom
At this second Roadmap stop, we will consider the historical and current relationship between geography and racism, inequities and health risk and outcomes in New Haven and beyond.
We’ll discuss the film “The Hill” and hear from the filmmaker and comments by our expert invited panelists:
- Lisa Molomot, Filmmaker, The Hill was her 2013 directing debut. She currently teaches at the School of Theatre, Film and Television, the Human Rights Practice Graduate Program and the James E. Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona
- Dr. Danya Keene, Associate Professor of Public Health in Social and Behavioral Sciences at Yale School of Public Health.
- Dr. Frank Snowden, the Andrew Downey Orrick Emeritus Professor of History and History of Medicine at Yale.
Using a Q&A format, we will then review local history to ground our understanding of past and current issues of residential segregation and the health effects that have been made even more visible by COVID.
In preparation for the session, please watch the documentary beforehand! Runtime is exactly 1 hour and available free of charge Panopto (Yale Login required) or Vimeo
