Screening of “The Color of Care” Documentary

August 3 @ 2:00 pm

western spirit museum

Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West presents several screenings of the Oprah Winfrey-backed “The Color of Care” documentary, starting August 3.

“The Color of Care” documentary chronicles how people of color suffer from systemically substandard healthcare. COVID-19 exposed what they have long understood and lived: they do not receive the same level of care. Produced by Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and directed by Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning director Yance Ford, the film traces the origins of racial health disparities to practices that began during slavery and continue today. Using moving personal testimony, expert interviews and disturbing data, the film reveals the impact of racism on health, serving as an urgent warning of what must be done to save lives. Three local guest panelists will join the screening: Jen Urso, Todd Bailey and Michael Yudell, Ph.D.

All registered guests are welcomed to the screening and provided museum entrance free of charge for this special event.

Event schedule:

2 p.m.- A panel conversation

2:30 p.m.- The Color of Care preview screening

3:30 p.m.- Q&A and light refreshments

Additional screenings of “The Color of Care” are complimentary with paid admission to the museum on these additional days: Wednesday, August 10 at 2 p.m.; Wednesday, August 17 at 2 p.m.; and Wednesday, August 24 at 2 p.m.
