Harriet A. Washington, acclaimed author of Medical Apartheid will be debuting her new book Carte Blanche: The Erosion of Medical Consent
Black History Month Online Book Release Talk
Harriet A. Washington, author of Medical Apartheid, is again exposing a large-scale violation of patient, civil, and human rights.
Carte Blanche is the alarming tale of how the right of Americans to say “no” to risky medical research is being violated. Patients' right to give or withhold consent is supposed to be protected by law, but for decades medical research has been conducted on trauma victims―who are disproportionately people of color―without their consent or even their knowledge.

"Urgent, alarming, riveting, and essential, Carte Blanche reveals that Americans, including African Americans, are still being medically experimented upon without their consent―yet again in research sanctioned by law. Harriet Washington’s powerful indictment of ongoing medical coercion unveils a gross violation of our human rights. It is vital reading at a moment when change is so necessary.” ―Ibram X. Kendi, author of How to Be an Antiracist and Stamped From the Beginning
