Wednesday, February 20, 2008 | The Negro Project | The Negro Project: "The aim of the program was to restrict–many believe exterminate–the black population. Under the pretense of 'better health' and 'family planning,' Sanger cleverly implemented her plan. What’s more shocking is Sanger’s beguilement of black America’s cr�me de la cr�me–those prominent, well educated and well-to-do–into executing her scheme. Some within the black elite saw birth control as a means to attain economic empowerment, elevate the race and garner the respect of whites.

The Negro Project has had lasting repercussions in the black community: 'We have become victims of genocide by our own hands,' cried Hunter at the 'Say So' march."
