The Angry Heart - Documentary on Health Inequality

The Angry Heart is a 57 minute documentary that takes a look at health inequality with a focus on African-American heart health. The documentary focuses on Keith Hartgrove, a 45-year old African-American man who has had three heart attacks and reviews how institutional racism has affected his health. With input from experts like Cornell West and Drs. Camara Jones and Nancy Krieger, this is an excellent documentary that serves to educate the viewer of what factors contribute to the perpetuation of health inequality for African-Americans.
