Changing the Equation: 50+ US Black Women in STEM

We rated this book:


This is a great STEM job summary. It has a page about each person and half of it describes their job. The book seems to be about the impact of the black women mentioned, but it is really a job overview. If you are searching to get interested in the different jobs to find out which one to research this makes a great reference, but it is dryly written and that makes it somewhat unappealing. It is super boring if you are reading it all the way through. It is great if you want an intro to black women in stem. It is also a good resource for writing a paper because it is written plainly with only the most important bits included. If it were titled something like Jobs in STEM: 50 Amazing Black Women and their Jobs it would have been five stars, but due to the mistitle it is harder to read. It should be in a school library, to be read by eight-to-eleven-year-olds.
