Black Man in a White Coat: A Doctor's Reflections on Race and Medicine, Hardcover – September 8, 2015, by Damon Tweedy (Author).
Black Man in a White Coat examines the complex ways in which both black doctors and patients must navigate the difficult and often contradictory terrain of race and medicine.
