UNLV and its Division of Educational Outreach celebrate Women’s History Month with a special presentation, “Doing Science from the Back of the Bus: Science and Civil Rights in the Life of Roger Arliner Young.” Sara P. Díaz, assistant professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at Gonzaga University, will discuss the life of Roger Arliner Young, the first African-American woman to earn a Ph.D. in zoology (1940). Fifty years after her death, Young’s professional experiences continue to resonate with many women of color in science and the academy.
