Scientists and experts of African heritage have made many important contributions to this process, and their inspiring stories are inside. Read about their innovations in electronics, computer technology, video production, software coding, and entrepreneurial leadership. Some of these experts are also using their position to mentor younger scientist who hope to make their own dreams come true. Will you be next? Great scientific achievements, innovations, and inventions often have been recorded by men and women of color, and this series celebrates their work and lives, specialty by specialty. Their stories can inspire students of today to pursue their own dreams of science success. In a perfect world, we, like science, would not see color. Until then, we celebrate and inspire with stories of Black Achievement in Science.
