The third edition of Health Issues in the Black Community comes eight years following the release of the second edition and, to our chagrin, presents a picture of African American health replete with many of the disparities documented in the first two editions. Following virtually two decades of studies showing stark contrasts between black and white Americans, we are still faced with a situation that portends a lowered health status and overall quality of life for the black community. The third edition not only documents this continuing gap but also calls for all relevant sectors of U.S. society to actively acknowledge the disparities and move toward viable strategies for removing them.
