Troubling legacy of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study
Summary
This exhibit aims to preserve the collective memory of the Tuskegee Study and ongoing transformation of its legacy. From 1932 to 1972, 399 African-American males were denied treatment for syphilis and deceived by officials of the United States Public Health Service. The Claude Moore Health Sciences Library hosted a special symposium, "Doing Bad in the Name of Good?" on February 23, 1994 which marked a new renewal for addressing the Tuskegee Syphilis Study.
