Virtual Event: African Americans in Astronomy

Wednesday Webinar: February 23, 2022 7pm

Join us as Brian Koehler, Supervisor of the Mystic Seaport Museum‘s Treworgy Planetarium, highlights the groundbreaking achievements by African Americans in the fields of Astronomy and space exploration. For hundreds of years, these pioneers have worked in the face of discriminatory laws and prejudicial treatment. However, their persistence led to remarkable accomplishments that have changed and shaped our understanding of the cosmos. This program will introduce and celebrate just some of these remarkable individuals. AARP CT is the proud sponsor of this virtual program.
