    Highly Recommended

    Intiguing welcome insight on Dr. Drew, his aspirations, successes, disappointments and the historical foundation of African-Americans in medicine in the United States. For years the myth and legend of Dr. Charles Drew has intrigued me. My daughter as a child picked up the banner after questioning me one day as we passed the Charles Drew Memorial on Hwy 49 - Alamance County. He became her favorite for classroom reports and other assignments. This is a great resource for a wide range of historical information which frames how Dr. Drew grew in his quest for racial equality in the U.S. all the while establishing effective nonviolent activism that moved him beyond many racial barriers and was at the core of educating America and dispelling the myths about the effects of blood transfusions.
