Black Man in a White Coat

a Doctor's Reflections on Race and Medicine
Nov 05, 2015savtadina rated this title 4.5 out of 5 stars
Excellent, eye-opening book about a man raised in a segregated black neighborhood, gets a full scholarship to Duke University, and eventually becomes a psychiatrist. We see through his eyes his experiences, dealing with race in many different situations, his own background prejudices, and the need to deal with ones prejudices while dealing with patients. It is an excellent book and I found it riveting.
