Author and nurse practitioner Felicia Hunt offers a compelling look inside a global tragedy with her new release, Remembering 2020: Year of the Most National Challenges. This insightful book examines the intersection of healthcare accessibility and underserved communities while commenting on the pandemic, the presidential election, and the rising systemic racism in America.
Part journal and part memoir, Remembering 2020 discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic affected American society, especially people from marginalized groups. This includes an analysis of the Black Lives Matter movement and how the historic presidential election impacted Black, brown, and Latinx communities. Hunt’s thoughtful, engaging book also provides health education to help bridge the gap between rural communities and screening tools for at-risk populations.
Although Remembering 2020 is intended for readers from marginalized backgrounds and communities, anyone can benefit from understanding more about systemic racism and health disparities that exclude Black, brown, and LGBTQIA+ voices from essential conversations. Hunt draws upon the media and her own experiences as a healthcare professional to dissect how the year 2020 further strained existing tensions.
During an increasingly divisive time in America, Remembering 2020 highlights the fact that every person has a unique voice that deserves to be heard. And part of that, as Hunt eloquently explains, is ensuring fair access to healthcare and information for all who need it.
