High Noon Talk: The First African Americans in the Space Program


July 1, 2015 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Held on the first Wednesday of every month, High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through this lunch-time lecture.

Steven Moss and Richard Paul, authors of We Could Not Fail: The First African Americans in the Space Program, will share the stories of those who broke the color barrier at NASA. As one of the first federal agencies to change its hiring practices, NASA and the men who integrated its ranks showed that the agency was inspirational not just for rocket launches and lunar landings.
