To celebrate Black History Month, the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) is featuring African-American scholars and scientists who made important contributions to their disciplines and our country. In spite of the fact that African-Americans have been part of the American society from before the birth of this nation, their stories and contributions are often overlooked. Thus, throughout the month of February, the NPA continues to share some of these stories via social media. Individuals highlighted include Harold Amos, Mamie Phipps Clark, Edward Alexander Bouchet, Jewel Plummer Cobb, Kenneth Clark, Katherine G. Johnson, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.


March is Women’s History Month, therefore we will continue the celebration by featuring female scholars and scientists.


Join us in learning about these remarkable people and celebrate their accomplishments by sharing the outstanding careers of these scholars and scientists to inspire and motivate a new generation of postdoctoral scholars.


Best,

NPA leaders and Diversity Officers
