The Ultimate Betrayal


Author(s):
Abstract:
Thousands of North Carolina residents were forcibly sterilized as part of the state’s eugenics policy between 1929 and 1974. Those still alive are seeking justice before they die, but restitution has not come to residents yet although it has been promised by the NC Justice for Victims of Sterilization Foundation. The history of the program in the North Carolina and throughout the country is explored. Personal stories from victims are also shared.
