The RTC Project was a 3-tier initiative covering a systematic review, qualitative study, and quantitative study. The overall goal was to examine the impact of covid-19 on the Black community by participatory research, answering a set of questions via survey, focus group sessions, and semi-structured interviews. Over 400 stakeholders were engaged in the project and over 100 participated in the survey and funding was provided by the Federal Government, Department of Public Health. The project used Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) method to invert traditional data collection methods. This is rooted in the notion that individuals and experts from Black communities are the best equipped to identify the needs and experiences of Black communities, and that their survival in the colonial state is inextricably tied together.
