Mental Genocide: The Attack on Black Bodies + Black Minds

May 17, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

There is a lead paint epidemic in Baltimore, MD that disproportionately impacts African Americans. Lead poisoning creates irreversible, lifelong health issues such as neurological damage increasing occurrences of mental illness.
In 2016, Korryn Gaines was murdered by Baltimore Police in front of her then 5 year old son. 4 years earlier in 2012, Korryn filed a lawsuit against the owner of two Baltimore rental homes she had lived in as a child. Her suit alleged “a sea of lead” paint made her ill. A doctor who examined Gaines found that she continued to display “signs of neurocognitive impairment,” and “lost significant IQ points as a result of that exposure.”
