African Americans in Science: Books for Young Readers. ERIC Digest.
Haury, David L.
American society and classrooms are culturally multifaceted. However, people of color are woefully underrepresented in many professions, particularly those related to the sciences and allied technical fields. An expanding gap, for example, continues to separate the degrees of participation in science programs and careers among European Americans and African Americans. In an effort to fill this gap, many teachers are searching for methods and resources to aid in teaching the contributions that all ethnic groups have made in science. This listing, while intended for readers of all cultures and ethnic identities, contains a list of books and other resources of African American scientists, engineers, and inventors. (ZWH)
