In his book, The Philadelphia Negro, W. E. B. Du Bois (1899) bemoaned the "peculiar" attitude of indifference that America exhibited toward the human suffering reflected by the poor health of Blacks.  The Spring 2011 issue of the Du Bois Review (8.1) provides a state-of-the-art overview of contemporary racial health disparities research, featuring the work of more than sixty scholars in relevant fields.
