In his book, Ancestral Voices Rising Up: A Collage Series on the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, Obiora N. Anekwe chronicles the American tragedy of an unethical human experiment conducted on African American men. He gives the viewer a perspective of this human atrocity through the voice of art. As such, his collages speak to the ancestors of our past and transform the blues of an everyday people into a hope for human renewal. Obiora vividly reminds us all that the story of Tuskegee is one of remembrance, healing, and reconciliation.
