"Racism has created a situation where people of color are woefully underrepresented in STEM fields."
- Dr. Ebony O. McGee
Professor of Education, Diversity and (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) STEM Education
As a professor of diversity and STEM education at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College, I investigate what it means to be racially marginalized while minoritized in the context of learning and achieving in STEM higher education and in the STEM professions.
Black, Brown, Bruised tells the whole story. Most scholarship on STEM Access narrowly focuses on test performance, as if the result were without a cause. Dr, McGee’s brilliant narrative weaves together research on psychology, education, learning sciences, and science to warn us of the critical mistake STEM makes by reimaging an exclusionary space. This timely and visionary book takes one-of-a-kind exploration into the intersectional forces that impede the progress of STEM.
