“Breaking Down the Barriers: Meharry Medical College and the Impact on the African American Community in Winston-Salem”
Please join us for this special panel discussion hosted by NWM’s collaborative partners, the Society for the Study of Afro-American History. Founded in 1876 as the Medical Department of Central Tennessee College, Meharry Medical College was the first medical school in the South for African Americans. Many graduates of Meharry began their professional careers at the Kate B. Reynolds Memorial Hospital for African Americans (which became the third largest hospital for African Americans in the United States in 1941) and later opened their own private medical practices. The panel discussion will include doctors and nurses who graduated from Meharry Medical College. The event is free and open to the public. Guests are welcome to bring a bagged lunch.
