Dr. Mae Carol Jemison
Saturday, September 21, at 7:00 pm
Lou Higgins Center, Ursprung Gymnasium
136 E. Bagley Road, Berea

In a year when Americans celebrate man’s first steps on the moon 50 years ago, BW welcomes Dr. Mae Carol Jemison, the first black woman to travel in space (aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour in 1992). Since hanging up her NASA spacesuit, Jemison has started her own technology research company and non-profit educational foundation. In a Q&A talk, Jemison will share her story and how she continues to advocate for women of color to break barriers in STEM.

Funded by The Burton D. Morgan Foundation and Women for BW.
