The Infamous Syphilis Study and Its Legacy (The John Hope Franklin Series in African American History and Culture)
Susan M. Reverby
This book delves into the forty-year Tuskegee Syphilis Study, a notorious example of medical racism and government malfeasance. The study, which took place in Tuskegee, Alabama, involved untreated syphilis among African American men, who were misled about their treatment. The author, Susan M. Reverby, analyzes the study and its lasting impact on our collective memory. With a rigorous and clear approach, she explores the study from multiple perspectives in this comprehensive examination.
