Fewer Black men applied to medical school in 2014 than in 1978 and today, only 2% of American doctors are Black men. Even more concerning, Black men have the lowest life expectancy in the United States. Black Men in White Coats is a documentary that dissects the systemic barriers preventing Black men from becoming medical doctors and the significant consequences on society.
