Mark Your Calendar: 'Black Physicians in the Jim Crow South'

The Mobile Medical Museum will present the second lecture in its "Exploring Medical History" series Nov. 19, 2013, at 7 p.m. in the University of South Alabama's Marx Library, Room 181.

The lecture, titled "Black Physicians in the Jim Crow South," will feature Dr. Tom Ward, chair of the history department at Springhill College.

In 2010, Dr. Ward published a novel under the same title that he has designated for the lecture. In the book, he examines the development of the African-American medical profession in the South. Illuminating the contradictions of race and class, this research provides valuable new insight into class divisions within African-American communities in the era of segregation.

All "Exploring Medical History" lectures are free to the public.
