Join the National Museum of Health and Medicine on Sunday, Jan. 7  at 2 p.m. for a book talk with Jill Newman on the lives of Black Civil War surgeons. During the American Civil War, 14 Black physicians served as surgeons with the U.S. military. Their courageous lives and service are explored in this presentation, illuminating their military service and exploring the people and influences that shaped their early lives and the impact they made on their communities, their race, and their country. Their ambitions were not deterred by society's prejudicial dictates, and through their dignified acts of resistance and pioneering new pathways, they challenged the status quo and became symbols of an emancipated future.
