Dr. Ebony McGee

Dr. Sandra Adams (Biology) and Dr. Douglas Larkin (Teaching and Learning) have collaborated on three different grants from the National Science Foundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science over the past 8 years to support science teacher education at Montclair. This week, they continue their efforts to support science education by bringing Dr. Ebony McGee of Vanderbilt University to our campus (virtually!) to discuss her recent book: Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation. The library has the ebook which you can read with your MSU NetID and the print copy of the book will also be available to check out shortly.

“BIPOC STEMers gravitate toward empathic social causes, the elimination of disparities, and racial justice efforts within and beyond their STEM pursuits,” notes Dr. McGee. “Their own racial and ethnic marginalization—and the way they themselves have suffered—translates into concerns about local and global disparities.”

The talk is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required for this Zoom event at:
