written by Andrew Fraknoi
"Black Lives in Astronomy," a new 8-page resource guide includes written and video resources about and by 25 Black astronomers, as well as general materials to examine the history and issues facing Black members of the astronomical community. Both older, established scientists and people early in their careers are covered. It is aimed at the Astro 101 and amateur astronomer level, and thus does not include any technical materials. It is designed to give instructors and students examples of authentic black voices that can be shown in class or used in assignments.
