The year is 1932. Scientists are trying to understand the impacts of untreated syphilis in Black men. Through unethical practices, they began experimenting on human bodies. And so began a 40-year study that would ultimately end in the termination of the study without any significant results. The victims of this study were left untreated, forcing them to suffer through the symptoms as well as impacting the families. This study was named the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment.
