Our October, 2021 meeting of LMCC took place on Wed. Oct. 27 at 5:30pm est via Zoom. We focused on Harriet A. Washington’s 2006 monograph Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present, especially the following selections:
- The Introduction: “The American Janus of Medicine and Race”
- Chapter 4: “The Surgical Theater: Black Bodies in the Antebellum Clinic”
- Chapter 5: “The Restless Dead: Anatomical Dissection and Display”
If you missed the meeting, you can still access the text on the Readings page of this site!
Normally, we record our virtual meetings, but due to technical issues, we were not able to record this meeting. For a recording of other past virtual meetings, click here.
Our next meeting will take place on Wed. Nov. 17 at 5:30pm est. We will meet virtually using the same Zoom link. We will post an announcement about that meeting soon.
