Hungry, Thirsty and Unhealthy: How Food Deserts and Liquor Stores Dominates Black Neighborhood

Jayden Flowers

Senior, Psychology


There is an overabundance of liquor and tobacco products being sold in the black community. With that being said, there is also a lack of fresh fruits and vegetables available in those same communities.There is an overlap in statistics when it comes to the amount of liquor stores compared to grocery stores in African American neighborhoods. This presentation will discuss how tobacco and alcohol sales are higher in African American communities versus white communities, and an explanation on the health effects of African Americans due to the lack of healthy food options.
