Dr. Mae C. Jemison

In acknowledgement of Black History Month, here is a small sampling of one of the brightest scientific and medical minds in American history:

Jemison, a native of Decatur, Alabama, was the first African-American woman admitted to the U.S. astronaut training program. She became the first African-American woman in space on Sep. 12, 1992, as a member of the space shuttle Endeavor’s crew.

She earned her M.D. in 1981 from Cornell University Medical College and worked in private practice before becoming a teaching research physician with the Peace Corps in Sierra Leone and Liberia. She was one of 15 candidates chosen out of 2,000 applicants for admission to astronaut training in 1987.
