Minority Health Month Exhibit and Lecture

April 16, 2018 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

"Legacy of Black Medical Schools and Departments in the United States"

This exhibit will tell the stories of the 19 Black medical schools and departments that existed at one time in the United States. It will describe the important roles Black medical schools played in the development and training of the physician workforce and why these schools are needed today. The exhibit panels contain photos and information never before presented by the handful of historians who are experts on Black medical schools and departments. 

The lecture will be presented by Anita Moncrease, president of Moncrease & Associates, LLC, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Wayne State University School of Medicine, and Historian of the Historical Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit. Her interest in black studies, medicine, and history has inspired her to learn about the histories of the Black medical schools in the United States and share the journey and the experience with her co-creators: her nephew, Rashard Ballinger, grandnephew, Demetrius Granberry, and niece Brittani Moncrease.

Following the lecture, please join come to the Falk Library to view the exhibit and continue the discussion.
