Distillations #115 – Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, this show celebrates the contributions of African-American chemists. Segments on George Washington Carver (not JUST the guy who invented peanut butter) and a glimpse into CHF’s oral history program. You’ll hear interview excerpts from Reatha Clark King and Linda Meade-Tollin, two women who overcame both race and gender stereotypes to achieve great success in their field.
