This exhibit tells the forgotten stories of the 19 Black medical schools and departments that existed at one time in the United States. It describes the important roles Black medical schools played in the development and training of the physician workforce and why these schools are still needed today. The exhibit panels contain photos and information never before presented by the handful of historians who are experts on the Black medical schools and departments. For example, the Medico-Chirurgical and Theological College of Christ’s Institution (Church) or why the Black medical schools open where and when they did.
Join us for a special lecture:
