The Color of Care


About the Campaign

The Color of Care is a new documentary that traces the origins of racial health disparities to practices that began (before and) during slavery in the US and continue today. Using moving testimony from those who lost loved ones to COVID-19 and frontline medical workers in overwhelmed hospitals, it interweaves expert interviews and powerful data to expose the devastating toll of embedded racism in our healthcare system. The Color of Care is produced by Harpo Productions with executive producers Oprah Winfrey, Terry Wood, and Catherine Cyr. The film is directed by OSCAR®-nominated and Emmy® award-winning director Yance Ford, with producer Kate Bolger, James Blue and Tim Evans are executive producers for Smithsonian Channel, with producer Najma Nuriddin.
