Are we all in this together? It has become glaringly clear that the impacts of the pandemic are not felt equally by all. We may all be in the same storm, but we’re not in the same boat. This short film written and voiced by Darius Simpson explores the underlying causes of the pandemic’s disparate impact on non-White communities as well as the inequitable response by governmental entities, policymakers, philanthropy and media producers to those outcomes.
