About This Lesson

Coronavirus is devastating nations and communities around the globe. New demographic data from some U.S. cities and states reveals that the disease is disproportionately impacting communities of color in the U.S. According to the data, African American people are more likely to become infected with and die from coronavirus than other racial groups. For example, in the state of Michigan, where COVID-19 hit early and intensely, African American people comprise 40% of those who have died, yet make up only 14% of the total population.

This lesson plan provides an opportunity for students to understand how and why COVID-19 disproportionately affects African American people and reflect on what can be done about it.
