Prof. Yearby to Speak at CONVERSATIONS! at Dittrick Museum

CONVERSATIONS! at Dittrick Museum - The Babes were Silent: Infant Mortality and Public Health- Thursday, March 29th 6:00 - 7:00pm

From the website:

"Brandy Schillace, PhD, Senior research associate at the Dittrick Museum, will give a short TED-style talk on the rapid industrialization and immigration boom of the early 20th century in Cleveland. She will take a look at how a stressed water and sewage system, poor housing, and the exploitation of the poorest workers with the least social mobility led to outbreaks of cholera, rampant lead poisoning, and high rates of infant mortality in urban centers. The Social Justice Institute will provide a panel discussion, and the public is invited to take part in the conversation.  The geography of these neighborhoods still matters, and Cleveland still faces high infant mortality rates. The historical presentation will end with a panel discussion about problems of race, class, and health today. The presentation will end with a public roundtable and Q and A.

The event is co-sponsored by the Dittrick Medical History Museum and the CWRU Social Justice Institute."

In September, 2016 I wrote a blog post about the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. The Museum's director, Lonnie Bunch and, deputy director, Kinshasha Holman Conwill discussed the Grand Opening preparations in a Washington Post article entitled Painful but Crucial:  Why You'll see Emmett Till's Casket at the African American Museum, by Krissah Thompson (8/18/16). One of the most sacred items in the collection of over 3,000 objects in the inaugural exhibition, according to Ms. Conwill, was the exhumed casket of Emmett Louis Till (July 25, 1941-August 28, 1955), who was 14 years old when he was lynched in Mississippi.

On August 12, 2016 the Obama administration declared a public health emergency in Puerto Rico because of the Zika virus.  The declaration came one day after U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy visited the U.S territory and, according to a New York Times article, said he expected 25% of Puerto Rico's nearly 3.5 million people will be infected with Zika by year's end.
