COVID Black works at the intersection of health data, information, the humanities, race and social justice. We redefine statistics and information into living data and stories about Black Health. We are data griots. We are Black data storytellers. And we are redefining the future of Black health by marrying ancestry with data analytics & technology.

Mental Health and Coping during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Collectively, Black Americans have been deeply impacted by COVID-19. We recognize that some of the data on our site may compound the pain that Black people experience. And we know that many are unable to access the mental-health care they need to cope with historical and contemporary racism that result in trauma. In order to address the pain and help to restore a sense of well-being, we offer resources and a series of videos from expert psychologists who specialize in grief and healing for Black communities.
