"This book is for all the youth (especially youth of color) who will see themselves in these great Black Men in Science! As a physician myself, I wish I had this book to show my younger self I am standing on the shoulders of these talented men! These men are missing in our history books. Thank you Brian Patrick Avery for bringing these stories to the forefront and inspiring young minds to grow." —David Inwards-Breland, MD, MPH, professor, UC San Diego
"Black Women in Science earns two A's—one for accuracy and one for authenticity! As an education professor, I can't emphasize enough how important those two characteristics are in quality children's literature. Dr. Pellum delivers facts about noteworthy historical figures in a relatable voice and an easy-to-read text. Young readers will enjoy making connections between themselves and the women in the book, while also being inspired to explore STEM topics in their daily life. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to increase interest and engage a child in STEM development." —Dr. Sylvia Y. Cain, Professor of Education
