From 1932 to 1972, about 600 African American men in Alabama served as guinea pigs in the Tuskegee syphilis study -- now called one of the worst examples of arrogance, racism, and duplicity in American medical research. This book reveals the history and legacy of the infamous study though a comprehensive collection of articles, letters, newspaper accounts and works of fiction.
