Heart of A Community: The History of FAMU Hospital

Heart of A Community: The History of FAMU Hospital

Healthcare has become a topic of intense conversation over the past year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. FAMU Hospital provided healthcare services for African-Americans–traditional denied access to white-controlled institutions–for sixty years until the hospital’s closure in 1971.

Dr. Darius Young, an Associate Professor of History at FAMU, will explain the role of healthcare in the 20th century; the history behind FAMU Hospital; and how the university is playing a critical role in combating the Coronavirus pandemic.

This event is funded by the Florida Humanities Florida Talks: At Home! program.
