  • Biographical / Historical Note
     

    The Black Physician Experience in Eastern North Carolina grant project was an initiative of the Carolina Health Group. The project received funding through the North Carolina Humanities Council and ran for four weeks in February and March of 1996. The project involved holding public forums on four elderly black physicians in eastern North Carolina who had been practicing medicine for more than 40 years. The featured physicians were Dr. Andrew Best of Greenville, Dr. Milton Quigless of Tarboro, Dr. Joe Weaver of Ahoskie, and Dr. John Hannibal of Kinston.

    Each forum focused on one of the doctors and drew upon their personal experiences. Their experiences established medical practices in rural, small towns of eastern North Carolina was the primary interest. The program also examined key events, such as periods of racial discord in the 1940s and 1950s, the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, and the establishment of the school of medicine at East Carolina University.
