Little information was acknowledged by the American medical establishment on the contributions of Black Americans to medicine in the United States till after the civil rights revolution of the 1960s. This review is an attempt to recount some of the small corps of Black surgeons' trailblazers who helped establish the black identity in American surgery, thereby paving the way for succeeding generations.
