The Life Sciences and Society: An Approach to the Study of the Black Experience.
Eko, Ewa U.
Many college and university programs in African and Afro-American Studies have emphasized only the history, arts and culture of the peoples of African descent. The Life Science Project of the Six Institutions' Consortium was therefore a unique departure from all extant programs in African and Afro-American Studies. Its focus featured research into the activities of black scientists, dead and living, that have yielded considerable impact on the life sciences and society. An invitational workshop, of which this document is the report, featured seminars, reports, discussions, exhibits and films that emphasized the contributions of black scientists to the Life Sciences and the considerations in these sciences that have special relevance to the lives and conditions of black people. The proceedings of the major sessions of the workshop are offered in this publication for the benefit of all who are interested in encouraging the teaching, learning, and research and of the contributions of black scientists to the life sciences and society.
