Tuckahoe Real Stories Book Discussion
In 1968, Bruce Tucker, a Black man, went into Virginia's top research hospital with a head injury, only to have his heart taken out of his body and put into the chest of a white businessman. Now, in The Organ Thieves, Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist Chip Jones exposes the horrifying inequality surrounding Tucker's death and how he was used as a human guinea pig without his family's permission or knowledge. Join us for a discussion of The Organ Thieves: The Shocking Story of the First Heart Transplant in the Segregated South by Chip Jones.
