Despite low rates of COVID-19 infections, Maine has the largest racial disparity of infection rates in the country. Special Correspondent Kira Kay reports that Black immigrant Mainers have been disproportionately affected and that state aid needed to fight the virus has been slow to reach them. The story is part of our ongoing series, “Chasing The Dream: Poverty and Opportunity in America.” Special Thanks: James Myall
