"Good Blood" (Detail--Blind Man)


"Don't Let This Happen to You"

This pamphlet about syphilis was created for African American audiences. It includes information about causes, symptoms, testing, treatment, and effects. While it does use the word "syphilis" a few times, it primarily uses the phrase "bad blood" to refer to the illness. This detail is an image of a blind man.
