Hopeful and Encouraging History

Who was the first black American with an MD?

"He was the first African American to hold a medical degree and graduated at the top in his class at the University of Glasgow in Scotland."

He completed his MD in 1837.  He was born a slave.  Pretending that the barriers to advancement for blacks today are holding them back makes you wonder how a slave in antebellum America made it.
