Hidden In History: African American Doctors in Fort Worth
to 5 PM
500 West 3rd Street , Fort Worth, TX
Start date: Friday, April 20, 2012
End Date: Monday, June 25, 2012
With the persistence of Jim Crow laws and other discriminatory practices throughout the early part of the twentieth century, these medical pioneers faced many obstacles but also found opportunities to improve the lives of their families, their patients, and their community. Their history is Fort Worth’s forgotten history. These doctors made dramatic changes in the practice of medicine, and a nation’s long–awaited fulfillment of its promise of equality and freedom for all. The exhibit shares many stories, including those of Dr. Riley Ransom, Dr. C. W. Flint, Dr. George Munchus, Dr. Elisha P. Murchinson, and many others that paved the way for so many African American doctors. On exhibit in the West Wing from April 20 to June 25.
