Vanessa Northington Gamble, MD, PhD University Professor of Medical Humanities, Professor of Medicine, and Professor of Health Policy and American Studies, The George Washington University will discuss how in the first seventy-five years, the Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania graduated eighteen African American women – more than any other predominantly white medical school. This talk will examine the lives and careers of these “sisters of a darker race” who encountered racial and sexual discrimination as they demonstrated that medicine was Black women’s work.
