  • Black and white photograph of a large group of doctors standing around patient in a hospital bed. Dr. Charles R. Drew (1904-1950) who served as head of the Department of Surgery, reviews patient case Caption: and resident in surgery at Freedmen's Hospital.

    Charles Drew set a standard of excellence unparalleled by most of his white contemporaries. In 1943, his distinction in his profession was recognized when he became the first black surgeon to serve as an examiner on the American Board of Surgery. Despite the prejudices of American society in the first half of the 20th century, Charles Drew persevered in his practice and was never afraid to stand up for his beliefs and racial equality.
