Taking Care highlights the groundbreaking work, lives, and legacy of the Black nursing staff who were instrumental in clinical trials for a breakthrough treatment at Sea View tuberculosis hospital in Staten Island. This exhibition features Back and Song, a meditative film and art installation by artists Elissa Blount Moorhead and Bradford Young that connects this significant history to the contributions of Black healthcare workers, healers, and caregivers throughout time.
