Here's What One Black Medical Student From Boise Wished His White Friends Understood

Jun 19, 2020


On Saturday in Boise, a group of health care workers are planning to gather at the capitol steps for a rally in support of Black Lives Matter. Speakers are set to address the connection between systemic racism and medical care in the United States. 

One of the speakers at the podium will be Boise native Devin Gaskins, a medical student at the University of Washington. He joins Idaho Matters to talk about a recent op-ed he wrote about growing up Black in Idaho.
