The Black Angels follows the intrepid women who risked their lives caring for the city’s poorest—1,800 patients at Staten Island’s Sea View Hospital—and aided in the 1951 clinical trial of a breakthrough tuberculosis treatment. The Black Angels centers the voices of these extraordinary women and celebrates their legacy and spirit of survival. Book signing to follow.
