Mission Statement: Our goal is to promote partnerships between Black STEM workers and Science Fiction writers. Many STEM workers must work long hours for little or no pay to achieve the level of success they desire. Many Science Fiction writers would like to add a level of authenticity and accuracy to their stories but find the research daunting or the subject matter unapproachable. We have created this section of the site to create a solution to both issues. We wish to support African Americans in STEM and promote STEM-based SciFi within the African American community.
However, the expertise available here will not be exclusively STEM. Our initial goal was merely built out of a desire to promote it. We gladly accept Social Sciences such as Anthropology and Sociology. We also encourage historians to make themselves available as well as editors and illustrators.
Ultimately we will promote all people of color. Though the primary objective will be to raise the visibility and awareness of African Americans in STEM and other fields.
A variety of roles could be available to anyone including:
