Systemic racism is a public health crisis in the United States, affecting Black/African Americans and other groups. Systemic differences in the conditions to which society has subjected members of racial and ethnic minorities have led to health disparities that place significant burdens on these populations. These structural barriers to health equity include deleterious environmental health effects, higher rates of chronic illnesses, increased exposure to violence, effects on maternal and child health, reduced access to health care and insurance, higher mortality rates, and lower life expectancy, among others. This collection highlights research on these health disparities among Black and African Americans.
