Between the years of 1932 and 1971, the U.S. government used approximately 600 blacks from Macon County, Alabama, as human guinea pigs for syphilis research under the guise of treatment for "bad blood." Many participants were deliberately left untreated and died, even after a cure had been discovered. In 1997, President Clinton personally apologized to those who survived one of the 20th century’s most barbaric medical experiments. This program, hosted by CBS News correspondent Richard Schlesinger, includes an interview with one of the last surviving participants, Herman Shaw; explains the role of Nurse Rivers; and presents the medical establishment’s justification for disguising racism as legitimate medical research. Produced by CBS News Productions. (22 minutes)
