Note Originally broadcast on the PBS television program: American experience.
Summary Against the backdrop of segregation, a Black carpenter's apprentice with a genius for surgery and a white surgeon who dared to defy medical gospel forged a partnership that changed the course of medical history. With only a high school degree, Vivien Thomas became a cardiac pioneer and a teacher to two generations of American's premiere heart surgeons at a time when he himself could not become one. His journey is a compelling, often overlooked American story of personal triumph.
