BHM: International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2017

I thought it would be cool to salute all of the black women of science that I know and love. Little did I know that this list would take me hours to compile. It wasn’t the difficulty of finding friends who fit the population I was targeting, the challenge was that I have so many!

This isn’t a full list, but my eyes started to hurt so I had to stop. What a GREAT problem to have!
