This is the story of the nurse who participated in the Tuskegee experiment done in Alabama during WWII. The goverment wanted to repeat a syphilis study that had been done in Oslo during the late 1800s. Back then it was done on white men before a cure was known. This time, they wanted African American subjects because they believed they were inferior to white people.
These men were lied to. They were told they were getting treatment when in reality, they were only being studied. Even after penicillin was discovered to cure this disease, the goverment still withheld treatment from these men so the ravages of the disease could continue to be studied. They eventually developed tertiary (late stage) syphilis and went blind, crazy or had neurological deficits. They finally held a senate hearing in 1973 but by then, there were only about 127 men left out of the original 400 plus they had started with.
