20th century Black Scientific Renaissance at Bell Labs
May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5 – $20
From the 1970’s to ’90’s Bell Labs was the site of extraordinary achievement by Black scientists.
From its beginnings in the 1920s until its demise in the 1980s, Bell Labs-officially, the research and development wing of AT&T-was the biggest, and arguably the best, laboratory for new ideas in the world. From the transistor to the laser, from digital communications to cellular telephony, it’s hard to find an aspect of modern life that hasn’t been touched by Bell Labs.
Spend an evening discovering the personal stories of some of Bell Labs’ most outstanding scientists, researchers, and mathematicians. Clyde Bethea, Marian Croak, William Massey and James West will share stories of their years at Bell Labs, outstanding achievements, as well as impressive records of mentoring under-represented students to achieve greatness in scientific and technological careers.
