Summary
With little oversight, the Eugenics Board of North Carolina ordered the sterilization of thousands of the state's most vulnerable citizens. This award-winning series led to an apology from the North Carolina governor and the first legislation in the nation seeking to compensate victims of eugenics, or involuntary sterilization.
