(p.1) Introduction
Inequality and African-American Health

Shirley A. Hill

Policy Press

This book explores how the health of African Americans is influenced by numerous social settings and policies that reinforce racial inequality. The author accomplishes this by expanding on existing literature and research on the health deficit experienced by African Americans, as well as drawing on interviews with a class-diverse group of African-American women and men about health attitudes and experiences. This chapter introduces the structure of the author’s research and the structure of the remaining chapter of the book.

Keywords:   African Americans, social settings, racial inequality, health deficit, health attitudes
