Poster design
For much of the 20th century, incarcerated individuals were exploited by medical researchers. In an enlightening talk, Allen Hornblum, a criminal justice expert and author of Acres of Skin, and Yusef Anthony, a formerly incarcerated man who was repeatedly subjected to medical experimentation, will present this sordid history and take questions on this once widespread and disturbing American practice. This event will be held on Tuesday, December 3rd at 4:30 p.m. in McCormick 101 (Architecture Building), and is generously sponsored by the Princeton Progressives.
