In response to the ordeal Dr. Tamika Cross went through, Black female doctors from all over the world are coming together to show their beautiful black skin is also what a doctor looks like.
Unfamiliar with the story? Well, Tamika Cross, an obstetrician and gynecologist in Houston, was midway through a flight from Detroit to Minneapolis when a passenger’s emergency sent her into “doctor mode.”
Sometime after takeoff, a man two rows in front of her suddenly became unresponsive, she said, and flight attendants called for help.
Cross said she immediately flagged down one of the crew members, offering to treat the man. But she got a response she wasn’t prepared for. (BlackDoctor.org)
