A short series of essays about the lives and accomplishments of the earliest African American female chemists It s very stiffly written and in many cases the history is very bare bones just names a few dates and some dissertation and publication titles The author an early African American chemist herself doesn t try to tease out any themes trends connections or contradictions between the women s stories Even as pared down as this book is some basic conclusions seem inescapable to me A whole lot of people were prevented from achieving their full potential thanks to racism and sexism in the US and that hurt both them and the rest of us Think of all the inventions and discoveries we ve already missed out on because as a society we chose to hinder whole groups of people The women in this book experienced harms and impediments at every step of their lives from poor health care at birth to segregated education as children to hiring committees who refused to even look at their resumes to segregated labs that lacked basic euipment to a lack of childcare when they tried to raise families while working How much might every one of them been able to accomplish how much better could all our lives be if we would just treat each other euitably Thanks to historically black institutions like Howard or Tuskeegee Universities these women at least got a chance to studybut even then they often had to battle sexism The other big thing that jumped out at me was how wars and the space race enabled black and female workers to fill roles they had previously been shut out of This isn t a well written book But I m glad to see the accomplishments of historically disadvantaged people lifted up and I was particularly pleased that the book ends with a whole chapter about how to support the next generations of African American female chemists complete with organizations scholarships and activities to join to do so

When I first saw this book I was very excited I have always been interested in the study and history of chemistry I was also pleasantly surprised that Brown completed a great deal of her research at the Chemical Heritage Foundation a beloved Philadelphia museum dedicated to the history of chemistry With that said I was slightly disappointed in Brown s writing style it was of a listing and summary of the most notable African American chemists with little to no in depth analysis of the women s research Further it would have been nice to see a consistent inclusion and serious look at the women s undergraduate and graduate theses and specific mentor relationships that assisted these women in becoming professional chemists especially during times when the intellectual contribution of African American women can be sorely undervalued
