The Story of Dr. Daniel Hale Williams

Sometimes the impact a person has on the world isn’t seen for years to come, and that was the case with Dr. Daniel Hale Williams. Though faced with discrimination and financial hardship, Dr. Williams pursued a degree to help provide quality medical care for African American people. In July 1893, Doctor Dan’s life changed forever as he found himself facing an enormous decision, one that could end his career and ruin his reputation forever but might just save the life of his ailing patient.
