Exclusive Screening of the Power to Heal with Special Guest and Q&A with Barbara Berney Project Creator and Producer

POWER TO HEAL is an hour-long documentary narrated by Danny Glover that tells a poignant chapter in the historic struggle to secure equal and adequate access to healthcare for all Americans. Central to the story is the tale of how a new national program, Medicare, was used to mount a dramatic, coordinated effort that desegregated thousands of hospitals across the country in a matter of months.

Before Medicare, disparities in access to hospital care were dramatic. Less than half the nation's hospitals served black and white patients equally, and in the South, 1/3 of hospitals would not admit African-Americans even for emergencies.

Today the Covid-19 Pandemic has revealed the continued inherent failures, inequities and disparities in our current profit first healthcare system; people of color and underserved communities have disproportionately paid with their lives, and the social and economic destruction caused by the pandemic was only made worse under an employer-based system not designed to deliver healthcare to everyone.
