Movie Aims to Inspire College Students With Tales of Successful Minority Scientists

A student produced documentary, "Roots to Stem: Spelman Women in Science, profiles the careers of African American female scientists.

Here are two excerpts from the film which feature two of the nine women profiled in the documentary.
