Film Night: Forgotten Genius - February 9
Come see the film the film "Forgotten Genius" about the life of African-American chemist Percy Julian on Tuesday, February 9 at 7 p.m. at the Weaverville Library.
The grandson of Alabama slaves, Julian met with every possible barrier in a deeply segregated America. He broke the color barrier in American science more than a decade before Jackie Robinson did so in Major League Baseball.
He converted soybeans into synthetic steroids on an industrial scale, and his innovative approach helped make drugs like cortisone affordable and available to millions. A discussion will follow the film.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of Weaverville Library. For more information, contact the Library at 250-6482.
