Medicine, Healing, and Experimentation in the Contours of Black History

Race, medicine, bodies, and future memory of the past will always matter.

Lecture Description

Moving from slavery at sea to the contemporary world of medicine, this talk will provide a snapshot overview in medical history through the lense of African American history. Attention is given pre and post Tuskegee to enable deeper understanding of the delicate relationship in place with African Americans and the American medical profession. Even more, this talk centers on race, medicine, and the tangible ways of empowering a future of medical learning by highlighting a one-of-a-kind medical history course that enables the future to become racially empowered about the past before applying to medical school and public health programs.
