World-renowned documentarian Deborah Riley Draper and Coffee Bluff Pictures’ has collaborated with The Ad Council, JOY Collective, Voices for Our Fathers Legacy Foundation, and Black Coalition Against COVID for the COVID-19 Vaccine Education Initiative “Tuskegee Legacy Stories” in order to dispel myths about vaccinations in the African American community that has led to hesitancy about getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
Through four :60 spots and a five-minute short form documentary, the descendants of the U.S. Public Health Service Syphilis Study at Tuskegee share personal stories to help increase the visibility of Black voices in public health and build trust and transparency so people can make informed decisions for their health and the health of their loved ones.
