A Celebration of Black Men in STEM: What is Your Narrative?
February 23, 2018
8:45 a.m. to 11 a.m.
National Academy of Sciences Building
2101 Constitution Avenue, Washington DC, 20418
Stories are defined by the people who tell them. Too often, though, black men in science, engineering, and medicine have not been asked how they would like their stories to be told. As part of the celebration of black history month, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a conversation about the questions that define the stories, and stories that are guided by questions.
