The Falk Library is hosting the traveling exhibit “Opening Doors: Contemporary African American Surgeons” from November 1, 2009–January 28, 2010. This exhibit tells the stories of four pioneering African American surgeons and educators who exemplify excellence in their fields. Through contemporary and historical images, the exhibition takes the visitor on a journey through the lives and achievements of these academic surgeons, and provides a glimpse into the stories of those that came before them and those that continue the tradition today. It was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture. Stop by the Falk Library and celebrate the contributions of African American academic surgeons to medicine and medical education. The exhibit will be open during regular library hours.
