Art Hx: Visual and Medical Legacies of British Colonialism

A photograph of a Black man in brown patterned pants, a collared shirt, suspenders, and a brown hat looks down to watch as a white scientist or doctor places a needle in his arm. In the background, a Black woman looks in the trunk of a car. The backs of another pair can also be seen slightly behind the white doctor/scientist.
