Decades after the fact, Evers is called before a Senate committee to testify as to what really happened during the infamous "Tuskegee Study."
Keeping this in view, what was Miss Evers initial reason for participating in the study?
Answer: Miss Evers' initial reason of participating in the study was to help the sick men, some of whom were her friends.

What was the purpose of the Tuskegee study?
The purpose of this study was to observe the natural history of untreated syphilis; the African American men in the study were only told they were receiving free health care from the Federal government of the United States.
