The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment
From 1932 to 1972, more than 400 Black Alabama sharecroppers and day laborers were subjects in a government study designed to determine and study the effects of untreated syphilis. For forty years these men were told they were being treated for "bad blood" when, in reality, they were simply being observed. This experiment continued despite the availablity of a cure for syphilis. Eventually one reporter finally broke the story to the national press (the reporter who broke the story had tried to get the story out a few years before, but no one was interested).
