I know you’ve been waiting with bated breath, but wait no more. After the holiday hiatus, the weekly Chicago trivia contest is back!
Although Chicago is still extremely segregated, it actually was home to the first integrated hospital, Provident Hospital. Prominent black surgeon Dr. Daniel Hale Williams was the founder of the hospital, and he also performed the world’s first open-heart surgery on stabbing victim James Cornish, saving his life.
Q: What year was this groundbreaking hospital founded, and when did Dr. Williams perform the life-saving procedure?
