‘Black Sun’ Documentary Explores Minorities in STEM Fields

When examining those working in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) field, those with an observant eye may notice an obvious absence: the presence of minority youth.

But one assistant research scientist at the University of Arizona and expert in astronomers of the African disaspora is hoping to show a pair of minority scientists who are taking on a celestial project for the greater good.

Host Jamila Bey spoke with Dr. Jarita Holbrook, who launched a campaign to fund the project, to talk about the two scientists behind the upcoming documentary “Black Sun.”
