Marie Maynard Daly was the first Black woman to earn a Ph.D. In chemistry in the United States and the first Black person to earn a Ph.D. from Columbia University. She then worked at Howard University and then the Rockefeller Institute, where she studied the cell nucleus before DNA was fully understood. There is an elementary school in Queens, NY named after her. #blackgirlswhoscience #blackwomeninscience #blackwomeninstem #blackscientistsrock #blackscientistsmatter #blackscientist
Just wrapped up my past two years of doing lab research full time! It was challenging in the most rewarding of ways. I learned more than I could have imagined, met some brilliant people, saw the art in science on a daily basis, and my fro flourished while I did it👩🏾🔬 - My research looked at ancestral differences in Alzheimer’s Disease pathology, so it was empowering to be a part of project whose patient sample extended beyond just “Non-Hispanic Whites.” The ability of scientific research to have population wide impact is limited when its samples come from just one population. It was a reminder that having a diverse patient pool isn’t impossible, but it’s a choice that scientists have to willingly make. - There are many questions about how “race” is used as a category in science. Often, it only introduces more bias if it isn’t examined critically and with nuance. Often, it ignores that racism, not race, is the significant factor in pathological outcomes. Science is inherently political. The questions we ask are influenced by the things we care about. As a Black scientist, I’ve always been the only one in my immediate workspace & that can present with its challenges. Science is hard, but it’s fruitful & it’s dynamic. I’m incredibly grateful to have experienced it in all of its fullness & potential for inclusivity.... I’ll be back in the lab in no time 👩🏾🔬

Black History Fact of TODAY!... On this day in 1964 Joan Elizabeth Higginbotham, the third African American woman to go into space, was born in Chicago, Illinois. Higginbotham earned her Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Southern Illinois University in 1987 and her Masters of Management Science and Masters in Space Systems from the Florida Institute of Technology in 1992 and 1996, respectively. She began her career at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA ) in 1987 as a payload electrical engineer. Within six months, she became the lead for the orbiter experiments on the Space Shuttle Columbia. Two years later, she was promoted to lead orbiter project engineer. Higginbotham was selected as an astronaut candidate in 1996 and from December 9 to December 22, 2006 logged 308 hours in space aboard STS-116. She retired from NASA in 2007, having actively participated in 53 space shuttle launches. Higginbotham now serves as coordinating manager for the corporate social responsibility organization at Marathon Oil Company. She also serves on the board of Afterschool Alliance, a national organization working to ensure that all children have access to affordable, quality afterschool programs. In 2007, Higginbotham received the Adler Planetarium Women in Space Science Award. . #iamdw #culturecurrent #joanhigginbotham #womeninspace #nasa #nasawomen #blackwomeninscience #blackastronauts #americanhistory #womenshistory #blackgirlmagic #blackpress #nnpa
A word especially for my #blackwomeninstem I'm including myself. We have all worked ridiculously hard to obtain our STEM degree(s ) and sometimes are not the most seen or heard...sometimes by our own dimming of our own light. To be 💯 being a Black Woman from the hood, my voice was never listened to, heard or believed. Fast forward to academia & career settings I had to select my tone & emphasis carefully to not rattle my Caucasian colleagues. 😬 To my Black Women in STEM, be seen & heard...so many clueless folk that know nothing about STEM, are leading STEM based conversations and conclusions & bringing forth confusion & misinformation. Enough of that!!! Being shy, not a public speaker, a nerd, etc.,etc cant be an excuse to not being seen & heard... Let's make progress not excuses... Rooting for Black Women in STEM... Again this is about Black Women in STEM b/c im speaking from my real life experiences as a Black Woman 🥽🤓👑 Thank you kindly!

STEM empowerment? water knowledge? something about food/agriculture? or you want me to put it all together & collectively be your plug to sustainable solutions, domestic & global? ... whatever you need when it comes to navigating that eco & water situation...if i aint got the bag, i know how to get it & bag up what you need, to get you to whatever level you trying to reach i started from public housing, the best testing ground to see what you made of...i dont do typical or ordinary, i observe a lot & move w/ strategic vision...

The little one unearthing fossils. I never thought I would learn so much about dinosaurs as I have through our three years old. It is so much fun to watch our daughter getting excited about reading or watching a documentary about dinosaurs. It would be lost on me not to notice how white these documentaries are. So far, all the paleontologists we have seen are white, which makes me wonder about the disconnect between kids of color passion for paleontology and reality. Change is needed. #paleontology #blackgirlmagic #BLM #science #blackwomeninscience #museumofnaturalhistory
Fechando este Julho das Pretas, vamos trazer uma cientista que nos inspira. Caberiam aqui várias homenagens a tantas outras pretas maravilhas, e que certamente faremos. Mas diante desse momento de pandemia, é preciso reconhecer os talentos negros na ciência, que se debruçam sobre a pesquisa de forma incansável, e que contribuem para o desenvolvimento do país. Para fechar com chave de ouro o julho das pretas 2020 vamos homenagear a Drª Jaqueline Góes de Jesus. Desde o primeiro caso do novo coronavírus na América Latina, em 26/02/20, a cientista brasileira Jaqueline de Jesus teve um papel essencial. A pesquisadora coordenou uma equipe que determinou a sequência completa do genoma do vírus encontrado no Brasil. A sequência analisada apresentou diferenças em relação ao genoma identificado em Wuhan, o epicentro da epidemia na China. Porém, ela se aproximou das amostras do coronavírus observadas na Alemanha. O genoma completo do SARS-CoV-2 foi disponibilizado à comunidade científica no dia 28/02/2020, 48 horas após o primeiro caso notificado no Brasil. O estudo coordenado pela pesquisadora foi reconhecido mundialmente pela rapidez, já que a média mundial é de 15 dias. DrªJaqueline Góes de Jesus é uma mulher negra e nordestina. Jaqueline é natural de Salvador, graduada em Biomedicina; Mestre em Biotecnologia em Saúde e Medicina Investigativa pela Fundação Osvaldo Cruz; Doutora em Patologia Humana e Experimental pela UFBA, com doutoramento sanduíche pela Univ. de Birmingham, na Inglaterra. É Pós-Doutoranda pela Faculdade de Medicina da USP. Juntamente com Ester Cerqueira Sabino, Jaqueline de Jesus coordenou o mapeamento do novo coronavírus. As duas cientistas merecem nosso repeito e aplausos. Saber que uma mulher negra brasileira está a frente deste projeto é muito mais que representatividade; é a prova que podemos ocupar todos os espaços e desenvolvê-los com muita competência. Saber que a mulher que coordenou uma pesquisa deste porte é negra e nordestina é motivo de inspiração para a juventude negra que tem o sonho de entrar na universidade e virar cientista. Toda nossa admiração a essa mulher incrível! Respeitem o conhecimento dela! ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
| BLACK WOMAN - HONORING MY GENTLENESS & NOT JUST MY STRENGTH @vibewithbek Being an entrepreneur is challenging yet at a young age I set my mind on working strategically in high school, college & in my career so that when I became self employed w/ a company & a team... I would be well rounded, w/ a welcoming personality & compassionate wisdom. The pandemic has caused me to agree that I need to rest sometimes...so I now will take part of my Fridays, find a quiet space & write poetry, paint, etc....

Your skin’s pH is an important mechanism that maintains skin health. What is pH? pH is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration in a solution. The pH of a solution can be measured on a scale of 0-14. A pH of 0-6 is acidic, a pH of 7 is neutral, and a pH of 8-14 is alkaline/basic. What about skin pH? Your skin operates at a pH of about 4.7-5.5 (This range varies slightly ). The more oil your skin has, the more acidic it will be and the drier it is, it will be more alkaline. Normal skin is slightly acid. The pH of your skin plays an important role in how your skin functions. At the optimal pH, your skin will be resilient to pathogens. If the pH is outside this range, your skin will be open to invasion which will lead to infection, acne, etc. There are multiple factors that affect the pH of your skin: the products you use, air pollutants, weather, sun exposure, hard water, and more. When the pH of your skin is affected, several processes are affected: your epidermis will not be able to shed skin cells, will be unable to make essential lipids and moisturizing factors, and your skin’s microbiome will be disturbed. The easiest way to tell if your skin’s pH is affected is through the skincare that you use. If you use a cleanser that is too alkaline/acidic, your skin will feel “squeaky clean.” This does NOT actually mean that your skin is clean. It means that the cleanser is too harsh/stripping for you. This will eventually lead to redness, acne, inflammation, and more. Other skincare (retinol, exfoliants, vitamin C, etc. ) will slightly alter your skin pH but fortunately, your skin pH will return back to its optimal value within about 30 minutes to an hour! Products that extremely disturb the pH will affect this. How can you maintain a healthy skin pH? Always use products that are slightly acidic or neutral. Anything stronger will affect your skin. If you are concerned about the pH of your skincare, I recommend looking up your products to see if brands have listed the pH or you can also buy pH test strips and test the pH yourself! Have you ever had that squeaky clean feeling in your skin? What happened after? Let me know in the comments!

I've wanted to be a doctor since I was eight years old. I grew up in a community that supported my dreams, told me that I was smart enough to do anything. But the reality was much different. When I was in undergrad, I took a required communication course. In it, we talked about barriers to careers and education. A student that was 19 stated that she felt that barriers were a figment of people's imaginations. That she worked full time, grew up poor, but was still able to send herself to school. I thought about this, then calmly raised my hand. I too grew up poor. In a single parent household. I have a high IQ, always did well in school without difficulty. But there were no colleges beating down my door. Without a network, resources, and experience, my high school years were not spent preparing for college. I told her that she was experiencing the barriers to education first hand. We both had similar childhoods, but we're both sitting in the same classroom at the same time. It just took me 10 years longer to get there. Every day that we push forward, through the difficulty, through the pain, through the sacrifice, into spaces that were originally denied to us, is another day that's paving the way for someone else.
