How do eugenics victims find justice?
Willis Lynch was 14 when he was sterilized at a state training school in Kinston, N.C., in the late 1940s. At the time the Eugenics Board had declared that no ward of the Caswell Training School "should be released before being sterilized, except in the few instances where normal children have been committed through error." Willis was sent to the training school by his mother, who was overwhelmed with caring for seven children on welfare.
