Description: "... an asset to multicultural collections in public libraries. Reading the stories of these lives may inspire young people, African Americans and others, to look toward the sciences as a career". -- Booklist

"What is striking is that the social history of the United States is front and center in each of these lives. It makes you want to read each and every essay". -- William Cunningham, University of Maryland Library School Faculty (retired)

"... a must-have for all math and science teachers who continually ask the question, 'How can I incorporate multicultural education into such an objective subject?'" -- The Multicultural Pavilion, Web site of the University of Virginia School of Education

This is the first biographical reference source written for the general reader that brings to light the contributions of 100 outstanding African American scientists. These essays are about research scientists, inventors, engineers, and mathematicians who often had to overcome racial prejudice and other serious obstacles to reach their high level of achievement. Each biographical profile is packed with personal as well as professional information, providing not only the birth date, current status, and basic area of research or accomplishment, but also career highlights and contributions to society outside of individual disciplines.
