Influence starts with being known
Scientific American's Urban Scientist blogger is rightly concerned that the 100 Most Influential African Americans list recently released by The Root did not feature a single scientists (for shame!). I shared The HistoryMakers link with her--and now you! I think this is a great resource, featuring African Americans from a diverse array of fields (full and proud disclosure--my dad is featured). They have their mission and certainly do it well, but I would love to see younger scientists from more fields (their list is heavily-although not exclusively- based in the physical sciences). Any recommendations?
