Hello Black America! with W. Kamau Bell & Black Health Care Workers

THE CONVERSATION #BetweenUsAboutUs​ kicks off with an open and honest conversation between W. Kamau Bell and Black doctors, nurses and researchers that gets to the heart of Black people’s questions about the #COVID#vaccines​. This new campaign from KFF’s Greater Than COVID and the Black Coalition Against COVID launches with 50 FAQs designed to dispel misinformation and provide accessible facts about the vaccines from Black health care workers. More content will be added as new information becomes available. YouTube is providing significant support for the campaign, including high visibility promotion across its platform.

The campaign is produced by KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation), a nonprofit organization focusing on national health issues (no affiliation with Kaiser Permanente), and presented by KFF’s Greater Than COVID public information initiative and the Black Coalition Against COVID (BCAC). Rhea Boyd, MD, MPH, a pediatrician and public health advocate, and Reed Tuckson, MD, Founding Member, BCAC, co-developed the series with KFF and BCAC.

Jacob Kornbluth Productions worked with KFF and BCAC to create the videos. California Health Care Foundation, The Commonwealth Fund and Sierra Health Foundation have generously contributed funding to the production and are supporting distribution.
