This month we're exploring how our healthcare system can perpetuate inequity. Below we've compiled a reading list written entirely by Black women focusing on the intersection of race, gender, and health in a variety of circumstances, including living with a disability, working as a Black doctor, and navigating the mental health system.

If the concept of medical racism is new to you, stay tuned for our explainer blog post later this month. In the meantime, read our previous post about how peer-support programs like YWCA's BABES Network can help when navigating the healthcare system as a Black woman.
