In 1923 Alfred Waddell set out from Trinidad for New York with dreams of becoming a doctor. But it was Nova Scotia's Dalhousie University that opened its doors for him to study medicine. Graduating in 1933, he faced the suspicions of Halifax's white and black communities who regarded him as an "outsider." Undaunted, Waddell brought medicine to far-flung black communities and spoke out against injustice. In French: Un precurseur: Dr. Alfred E. Waddell
