Trailblazers in Black History: Dr. William Augustus Hinton

Internationally Renowned Researcher,
First Black Doctor to Teach at Harvard

Dr. William Augustus Hinton, the son of former slaves, became the first Black professor at Harvard Medical School and gained an international reputation for his medical research. 

As a young man, he boldly declined the offer of a Harvard medical scholarship reserved for African-American students in order to compete for a scholarship open to students of all races.

The video was published on YouTube on April 28, 2008.
