In order to understand how this pandemic impacted different community, historian and writer Edna Bonhomme will explore how Black women’s labour in nursing—which was limited by racial segregation—can provide more insight into the pandemic within the context of racial segregation, wartime activities, and medical treatment in confined or more compact spaces. African American nurses were often on call, but, due to the legacies of exclusion and discrimination in medicine; the expertise of these medical professionals was not always granted their full potential. Nevertheless, the work shows how their labour was rooted in care.
