Florissant Valley Branch
Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
As an ER physician and professor in academic medicine, Uché Blackstock is profoundly aware of the systemic barriers that Black patients and physicians continue to face. Dr. Blackstock’s memoir, “Legacy,” is a journey through the critical intersection of racism and healthcare. “Legacy” is Dr. Blackstock’s odyssey from child to medical student to practicing physician—to finally seizing her own power as a health equity advocate against the backdrop of the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.
