African-American Women Doctors in the Early 20th Century (Media Coverage)
Publication: C-SPAN Lectures in History Series
Date: 9/17/2016
Abstract: I discussed African American women doctors in the early 20th century, specifically Dickens work with other physicians in Philadelphia. I described their efforts on behalf of other African American women in the areas of birthing practices and cancer prevention. I argued that many of theses doctors saw a connection between race and health activism.
