Anarcha’s Story

By Alexandria C. Lynch, MS III


“Anarcha’s Story” exposes the Nazi-like experimentation on African-American female Christian slaves by Dr. James Marion Sims  (1813-1883) of South Carolina, the so-called “Father & Founder of of Modern Gynecology. His purported medical advances are still hailed despite his utter butchery and murder of the oppressed (black) and poor (Irish) women of America. Here is a measured and passionate account.

J. Marion Sims [A Biographical Sketch] By Wendy Brinker  /The Confessions of the Murderers of Emmett Till

The guilty continue at liberty and with weapons in their hands – weapons which continually threaten the lives of all citizens. If all the weight of the law does not fall upon the guilty because of cowardice or because of domination of the courts, and if then all the judges do not resign, I pity your honor.

And I regret the unprecedented shame that will fall upon the Judicial Power. I know that imprisonment will be harder for me than it has ever been for anyone, filled with cowardly threats and hideous cruelty. But I do not fear prison, as I do not fear the fury of the miserable tyrant who took the lives of 70 of my comrades. Condemn me. It does not matter. History will absolve me. — Fidel, 1953
