Binding Wounds, Pushing Boundaries: African Americans in Civil War Medicine
On July 29th, Inman E. Page Library invites Lincoln University administration, faculty, and students to visit its summer 2015 exhibition, Binding Wounds Pushing Boundaries: African Americans in Civil War Medicine Exhibition. The exhibition will be on view in the library through August 18th.
Many histories have been written about medical care during the American Civil War, but the participation and contributions of African Americans as nurses, surgeons and hospital workers have often been overlooked. Binding Wounds, Pushing Boundaries: African Americans in Civil War Medicine looks at the men and women who served as surgeons and nurses and how their service as medical providers challenged the prescribed notions of race and gender pushing the boundaries of the role of African Americans in America.
Through historical images and period documents, the exhibit explores the life and experiences of surgeons Alexander T. Augusta and Anderson R. Abbott, and nurses Susie King Taylor and Ann Stokes as they provided medical care to soldiers and civilians while participating in the fight for freedom.
Binding Wounds, Pushing Boundaries: African Americans in Civil War Medicine is a self-guided tour exhibition on view. Stop by the library and pick up a complimentary exhibition brochure and view the exhibit. The exhibition is open to the university body and the general public and is also available online here: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/bindingwounds/exhibition.html
