Via participant observation and interviews, Chelsey Carter identifies the ways COVID 19 has been racialized in St. Louis. Ezelle Sanford III, Assistant Professor of African American History at Carnegie Mellon University, collaborates with Carter. Recent articles are Racialized Disease and pandemic, The Myth of Black Immunity, and From Spanish Flu to COVID-19: Race, Class, and the Reopening of St. Louis.
