I heard about the Tuskegee Experiment, but never read in depth about it. I decided to get the movie and read a book about it later. I'm SO GLAD I purchased this movie. It was heart wrenching to see how the gov't took advantage of the poor blacks in the south and used an intelligent highly qualified doctor to conduct this experiment. I was in awe that the gov't knew they had no intention to treat these men. Alfre Woodard did a fantastic job. The burden her character had to carry all those years was incomprehensable. This is a good movie to introduce to youngsters when speaking of the history of African Americans.
