This is an incredible achievement. First of all I'm impressed that she got her graduate degrees in the Physics department at UAB........one of the top science universities in the South!

THEN to top it off she was able to secure this large grant only a few years out of grad school. I'd never heard of the sponsoring program for this award. I initially thought it was an NIH RO1 grant......................which is virtually impossible for new investigators to secure. But it's not an NIH grant. Its a program through the VA specifically targeted to investigators at HBCUs.  This is a great program! Here's a link............

If she's able to navigate this grant and get a lot of work accomplished / published, the sky's the limit for this young lady. As it is, the sky is ALREADY the limit for her. I'm also impressed that she CHOSE to teach at an HBCU. With her credentials, she could've secured a tenure track position at just about any university in the country.

Here's a video I found of her on youtube, participating at an event in Washington, DC at the capitol............

What folks don't know is AAMU had the very first accredited Physics department in the state of Alabama.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
