From the Inside Flap: This latest gem in the Black Stars Series brings African American women of science and invention to life. Countless African American women have made important contributions to science that impact the way we live, work, and think today. Too often their accomplishments have gone unrecorded. African American Women Scientists and Inventors introduces you to some of these outstanding women and their achievements.

Here are lively profiles of both unsung and legendary heroines spanning three hundred years of American history. For example, find out how:

Madame C. J. Walker emerged from a heritage of slavery to develop the "Walker System" of hair care that allowed her to employ thousands, fund foundations and scholarships to help young African Americans—and become the first woman millionaire.

Bessie Blount Griffin, a physical therapist, invented a device to help the disabled feed themselves.

Angela D. Ferguson, M.D., discovered a way to detect sickle cell anemia in newborns.

Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson, the first African American woman to receive a Ph.D. in physics, became a leader in her field. She was the first African American to become president of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, where she teaches today.
