Three hundred years ago the majority of us of African descent would have been slaves. Now we have CEOs of major fortune 500 companies; we have had tremendous success in sports and entertainment; and who would have thought we would have an African American living in the White House?
However, this progress could make us complacent or, worse, blind to the need that still exists. In spite of the victories, many have not benefited. The disparity in health outcomes emphasizes this point: that all is not what it seems.
