Duke Hospital's History: A Conversation about Race and Memory

From 1930 to the 1960s, Duke hospital’s wards were segregated by race.  Did people of color truly receive “separate but equal” care?   In what ways did the civil rights movement successfully challenge these inequities?  Did the racism associated with the Jim Crow era collapse, or re-appear in new forms?

Duke faculty physicians Damon Tweedy and Jeff Baker engaged in a dialogue exploring these issues and answering participant questions. See recording of their talk.
