Unequal Cities: Structural Racism and the Death Gap in America’s Largest Cities

Chicago has a worsening black-white mortality rate ratio in the past 10 years. We can definitely do better, we must do better and there are signs in other parts of the United States where things actually are moving in the right direction. The first book to specifically examine racial health inequities within and across US cities, Unequal Cities offers a social justice framework for addressing the newly identified inequities, as well as specific case studies to help public health advocates, civic leaders, and other stakeholders envision the steps needed to improve their cities’ current health outcomes and achieve racial equity.
