Celebrating Black History Month: Mae Jemison

“If we keep thinking that the arts are separate from the sciences, and we keep thinking it’s cute to say, ‘I don’t understand anything about this one, I don’t understand anything about the other one,’ then we’re going to have problems . . . . Science provides an understanding of a universal experience, and arts provide a universal understanding of a personal experience. That’s what we have to think about, that they’re all part of us, they’re all part of a continuum.” Mae Jemison is an astronaut, a doctor, an art collector, and a dancer . . . she was also the only real astronaut to be on Star Trek – a series about astronauts! Click here to watch her give a Ted Talk about the importance of teaching the arts and sciences together.

In celebration of Black History Month, the OICL Task Force invites you to share a short video like this one of someone who is important to you. Please send your submission to OICL & Ms. White with a one-or-two sentence introduction to the video and/or the person featured in it, and we’ll include it in a future Bulletin post!
