No black scientist has ever won a Nobel Prize — that’s bad for science and society
2018-10-12T08:01:41Z - The Conversation / The Next Web
Yet in over 100 years, we have never seen a black scientist become a Nobel laureate. The main reason why no black scientist has won a Nobel prize is simply a matter of numbers. Having a black Nobel laureate would inspire more black students to become black professors, which in turn would inspire more young black people to study science. A black Nobel laureate would have made it easier for them to see me as a potential high achiever and treat me accordingly. If we want more black scientists and eventually Nobel laureates, then similar direct strategic action is urgently needed.
