Free Presentation on "Sisters in Science"

The Montgomery (Alabama) Independent reports that Diann Jordan will give a free talk on Thursday, August 9 on "Sisters in Science: Conversations with Black Women" at St. Jude High School in Montgomery Alabama.

In her presentation, Jordan puts a whole new twist on science and history. She tells the inspiring stories of a virtually unknown group of African-American women who were pioneers in the fields of science and math.

In their own words, each scientist reflects on her early influences, her triumphs over obstacles of race and gender, and her role as mother, wife, and scientist.
Jordan is a professor of biology and science education at Alabama State University. This presentation is part of the Alabama Road Scholar (pdf) program.
