Blacks in Science and Related Disciplines. LC Science Tracer Bullet.
Sammons, Vivian O., Comp.; Dempsey, Denise P., Comp.
Humankind had its beginnings in Africa. Imhotep, the first scientist, was a man of color, an Egyptian. Africans made great strides in science and medicine prior to slavery. In the United States, blacks have contributed much to the advancement of science and invention; however, history for the most part has not given them credit for these contributions. Since World War II, opportunity and recognition have grown. This guide offers a guide to the literature in the collections of the Library of Congress and includes references to the accomplishments of blacks in the sciences, invention, architecture, engineering, medicine, photography, the military, and related fields. Information and/or citations are provided under the following headings: (1) "Subject Headings"; (2) "Introductory Material"; (3) "Basic Texts"; (4) "Collective Biographies"; (5) "Individual Biographies" and "Juvenile Literature"; (6) "State-of-the-Art Reviews and Conference Proceedings"; (7) "Abstracting and Indexing Services"; (8) "Journals"; (9) "Representative Journal Articles"; (10) "Selected Materials"; and (11) "Scientific Organizations."
