Here is our latest online exhibition, called One Day’s Disparity, which highlights the difference in black and white infant mortality rates in the US.  Did you know you are more likely to survive to your first birthday if you are born to a white American woman with a high school education than a black American woman with a college degree?

One Day’s Disparity is a visualization of rate of black infant mortality in the US, which is twice that of white babies.
