  Before the Common Rule: The Role of the Black United Front in Protecting Research Participants in Boston during the 1970s  
(Academic)

The SIRC Investigator Series: Conversations with Researchers initiative provides Virginia Tech researchers with a forum to share the ethical considerations that guide their research.

In the "Before the Common Rule" installment of the Division of Scholarly Integrity and Research Compliance (SIRC) Investigator Series, Wornie Reed, a professor of sociology and Africana studies at Virginia Tech, will discuss his work on the Community Research Review Committee.

The Community Research Review Committee was a project of the Boston Black United Front, and as such had broad community power to carry out its mandate to review research planned or being done in or on the local Black community, and to stop research believed to violate the protection of human subjects. Reed was a member of the Community Research Review Committee for three years and chair for two years.

Before joining the Virginia Tech faculty, Reed was professor of Africana studies and sociology and director of the Africana Studies Program at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He now directs Virginia Tech's Race and Social Policy Research Center, based in the Department of Sociology.

Reed earned his bachelor's degree in secondary education (in science and mathematics) at Alabama State University and his master's degree and PhD in sociology from Boston University.
