"There is very little reference material on black scientists in the US and even less that includes black women scientists. This book fills a void... " —Choice

"... a valuable new survey of a social group almost universally neglected by chroniclers of American culture... [an] admirable book... " —San Francisco Examiner

"... an illuminating collection of more than 100 profiles... " —Publishers Weekly

This pathbreaking book goes beyond the lip-service traditionally paid to Black women scientists and illuminates their scientific contributions, struggles, strategies, and triumphs. Drawn heavily from primary sources, Warren's original reference guide includes biographies of more than 100 Black women scientists in fields from anatomy and mathematics to psychology and zoology.
