Spilled Blood: The Life and Legend of Dr. Charles Drew
Steven Thrasher

The story of the life and times of African American hematologist Dr. Charles Drew. Drew invented that made blood transfusions possible, yet when the U.S. entered World War II, they announced they would exclude blacks from donating or receiving blood. His life and death reflected the irony he had to endure as a logical scientist in an illogically racist society.
