Event Description

Join the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and The Heinz History Center for a screening of “Until the Well Runs Dry: Medicine & the Exploitation of Black Bodies.”


About the film
This powerful documentary brings attention to issues relating to medical ethics or lack thereof, as it pertains historically to the African American community, and encourages discussion about what has changed.


The History Center’s African American Program will sponsor several film screenings and discussions in 2018 as part of the From Slavery to Freedom Film Series, hosted at the Frick Environmental Center. Visitors of the Frick Environmental Center can now see the new From Slavery to Freedom Garden, which showcases plants used for food and medicinal purposes by freedom seekers during the 18th and 19th centuries.
