Very compelling book
This was an interesting read that took a little bit of time to read. You really have to be in a certain mindset to read it. I liked it and it amazed me on what the Doctors went thru during the Civil Rights Era. Not just the black Doctors, the white ones as well. Plus there is added insight in what the black patients and lower income persons as well. I really stopped and made me think the entire time period and what many people endured during this time. I think all people should read this book and it would help to have a better understanding on what both races went through. Not only the problems the Doctors faced, but the nurses as well. I really liked the afterward that gave updates on what each Doctor went on to do after the Civil Rights movement.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I Also Recommend:
This book outlines a process whereby health care is a human right and not a priviledge. The medical committee for human rights in their committment for social justice in health care creates a path into healing that is attainable. It has long been noted that money buys you better care. This book is an attempt to share ideas on how this is not necessary and what can be done to elicit care as a fundamental obligation to all.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
