Black scientists have achieved and contributed to our world in so many ways from launching us into space, to discovering new disease treatments, to developing world-changing technologies – just to name a few.
Black people are too-often forgotten or unrecognized in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields as a result of systemic racism. In honor of Black History Month, MatSE celebrated a sample of the amazing Black scientists that have made a lasting impact in materials science and engineering.
