Moore’s second year at Leonard was also the year after the school had graduated its first class of Black physicians. It was also the year that cemented Moore’s idea of himself as a physician. The chapter lays out the expectations and pressure undergraduates at Leonard experienced as well as the teaching style and curriculum students encountered. Moore’s second year was also when he got to work with human subjects—both living and cadaver. Moore clearly made an impression in his second year as he was invited by older peers to collaborate in founding the Old North State Medical Society, one of the first Black medical associations in the country.
