Civil rights attorney and activist Fred D. Gray will speak about the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and the case he brought to trial in 1973. The medical experiment “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male” was conducted between 1932-72 by the U.S. Public Health Service using poor rural African American men who thought they were receiving free health care from the U.S. government. The study is infamous for its lack of ethical standards, which caused these men to go untreated for decades after penicillin was discovered in the 1940s and became standard treatment for syphilis. Gray came into prominence as a civil rights lawyer during the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955 where he worked with Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, and E.D. Nixon. He represented the Tuskegee Syphilis Study participants in a victorious lawsuit against the government in 1973 and in 1997 helped procure President Bill Clinton’s formal apology for the U.S. government’s role in this terrible injustice. Part of the legacy of his lawsuit was the establishment of the government’s Office for Human Research Protections and the federal laws and regulations requiring Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) to operate nationwide in order to protect the interests of human subjects.
Following Gray’s keynote speech, there will be a book signing from 8:00-8:30 p.m. for his two publications: The Tuskegee Syphilis Study and Bus Ride to Justice: The Life and Works of Fred D. Gray.
