The Black Frontline
Using 21st-century global technology of voice notes, Black healthcare-workers will record stories of their experiences on the frontline as a nation’s lifeline. Those voice notes will be a research foundation for the creation of this project. A range of healthcare workers will be featured. From doctors and nurses in the UK to doctors in New York City, to healthcare workers in Accra – The Black Frontline will be a bridge that connects, informs, engages, and transforms knowledge about the pandemic.
