*The 2019 Hubie Jones Lecture in Urban Health with Dr. Mary T. Bassett: An
Unbroken Thread: The Pursuit of Health, Equity, and Racial Justice*

Wednesday, May 1, 2019, 4:30 – 6:00 PM
Boston University Kilachand Center, 610 Commonwealth Ave.

Dr. Bassett, director of the François-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and
Human Rights at Harvard University and former commissioner of health for
New York City, will review the enduring impact of the color line on
national and urban health. This year—2019—marks 400 years since the first
African arrived in Jamestown, Virginia, to be sold into bondage. She will
discuss how the revived commitment to racial/ethnic equity in health,
particularly in cities, draws on a long history. Dr. Bassett will argue
that strategies to promote equity are necessary not only for democracy with
justice, but for the pursuit of technical excellence.

1.5 social work continuing education credit hours available. Presented by
the Center for Innovation in Social Work & Health <https://ciswh.org/> at
Boston University's School of Social Work.
