Title: The Faces of Science: African Americans in the Sciences
Url: https://webfiles.uci.edu/mcbrown/display/faces.html
Publisher: University of California, Irvine.
Description: A wonderful collection of biographies and information on the many contributions of African American scientists are available at this site. Fields of work highlighted include biochemistry, biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, genetics, meteorology, geology, oceanography, and several other sciences. Continually updated, the site offers many new contributions since its last review, including special highlighted areas for woman and for the first African Americans who earned doctoral degrees in their field. Each biography includes a photograph (if available) and a brief description of the person's life and work. This important site, which would be a good addition to K-8 curriculum, may help to inspire students to work towards realizing their dreams as well as giving students a look at the bigger picture of the world of science.
