Abstract: Editorial regarding historical anecdotes. Reference is made to when the first human heart transplant was carried out. This was carried out by a South African cardiac surgeon, Christiaan Barnard, utilizing the techniques developed and perfected by Norman Shumway and Richard Lower. He performed the transplant at the Cape Town’s Groote Schuur Hospital. All the medical team was caucasian, with the exception of Hamilton Naki who was Barnard’s black assistant.
