BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — ROLLINS EDWARDS, WWII Veteran, still suffers the effects of the human testing conducted on him. 60,000 soldiers of color, mainly black, were used in experiments during WWII. No, this wasn’t Nazi Germany locking people of color in gas chambers, this was done by the US Government.
Rollins Edwards felt he had no choice in the ‘testing’ matter. He just did as he was told. He now walks around with a jar containing his skin, so that people would believe his story. As you might know, the TRUTH is the hardest thing for people to believe. Naked Departure (Photo Source: Amelia Phillips Hale for NPR)
