This is the true story of Peter Calloway’s grandfather, Nathaniel Calloway. A Black man, he graduated from medical school in the early 1930’s. Unable to get work at any Chicago hospitals (because he was Black), and unable to secure a loan from a bank to start his own practice (because he was Black), he turned to another source of money in Prohibition-era Chicago: the Mafia, run by none other than Al Capone.
