Recent tobacco control programs have not closed the gap in disparities for African Americans. This poster see~s to pr~vide a theoretical framework for addressing the health inequities in tobacco among African Americans usmg the work of critical race theorists Richard Delgado and Kimberlie Crenshaw. Critical race theory has been used predominately in the legal and education arenas, but has broad implications for addressing health inequities that exist among African Americans. Applying critical race theory to tobacco use, the author will argue that: I) public health interventions should not exist in class bound areas; 2) that colorblind approaches to public health increase health disparities; and 3) public health interventions should be developed for specific commu­ nities of color.
