Why acknowledge National Negro Health Week in the 21st Century? The year 2015 is the 100th Anniversary of the death of Booker T. Washington, the founder and first president of the historic Tuskegee Institute. The Commemorative Booker T. Washington 1915 – 1951 Negro Health Week Forum documents Tuskegee University’s work in public health which preceded the unethical U.S. Public Health Service Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male at Tuskegee. This crucial public health forum contextually revisits the 100-year public health evolution from the 1915 National Negro Health Week to Minority Health Month in 2015. The forum will reframe the negative image of Tuskegee University as the site of the infamous unethical Syphilis Study and reveal the ongoing current collaborative work and relationship between the National Center for Bioethics in Research and Healthcare at Tuskegee University and the Office of Minority Health and Equity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
