Please join me on Wednesday evening for my African American town hall.
A lot has happened since Donald Trump has become president. In the past few months, we’ve seen exactly what the African American community has to lose. The truth of the matter is that we have decades of progress at stake.
I believe that in all of his regressive policies — on civil rights, health care, education, voting rights, environmental justice — the president is endangering our communities and cementing institutional racism.
It’s up to us to shed a light on these injustices.
2017September 12, 1992 - “Dr. Mae Jemison Goes to Space” "Dr. Mae Jemison, an engineer, physician and NASA astronaut, became the first African-American woman to travel in space when she went into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour. During her 8-day mission she worked with U.S. and Japanese researchers, and was a co-investigator on a bone cell experiment. Jemison originally practiced as a doctor, then served in the Peace Corps from 1985 to 1987. In 1987, she was selected to join the astronaut corps. She resigned from NASA in 1993 to found a company that researches the application of technology to daily life."
