As of July 16, 2014, the Bioethics Research Library at Georgetown University, Washington, DC designated his third and most recent bioethics and education book, Ancestral Voices Rising Up: Collages on the Tuskegee Syphilis Study (published June 7, 2014), among the most recent bioethics books to read in the year of 2014. His book is the first in bioethics and education to chronicle and document the Tuskegee Syphilis Study through the narration of art.

New Titles in Bioethics displays listings of the most recent book acquisitions of the Bioethics Research Library at Georgetown. The publication lists the annual cumulation, update of new books related to biomedical, philosophical, religious and applied ethics. The Bioethics Research Library is home of the world’s largest and most extensive collection of materials on ethics, medicine and biochemical research. Available works span classical to contemporary thought, rare texts to digital archives, and reflect the full range of religious, political and cultural perspectives.

Such an acquisition by one of the leading Jesuit institutions of higher education in the world is personally significant to him because of his great respect and admiration for the Society of Jesus as historically "the greatest teachers on earth."

His forthcoming book, Ethically Speaking: Essays and Other Writings on Race, Class, and Justice in Health Care and Medicine, will be published later this year.

Sincerely,
