Wright Museum Exhibit Tackles African American Pioneers in Science and Technology

Friday, November 9, 2012

With the importance of science and tech jobs on the rise, Detroit's Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History takes on the role of the so-called STEM fields in African American History in a new exhibit. 'Inspiring Minds: African Americans in Science and Technology' opens this Saturday, and the museum's vice president and two prominent African American STEM field leaders join Craig to talk about the exhibit and the role black Americans play in these pioneering fields.

The exhibit fits with the mission of museum founder Charles H. Wright, who hoped to help educate and inspire young African American students toward new careers in burgeoning STEM fields.
