Science in Color Bonus Ep: An Honest Conversation About What It Means to be An African- American Man in STEM

This bonus episode builds upon Science in Color’s dialogue with Dr. Kevin Jones by continuing the conversation with Jonte Jones and Tony Larkin, two African-American contributors to Science in Color.  This interview covers issues that uniquely affect African-American men in STEM such as the idea of a heightened imposter syndrome, the extra burden of wanting to give back to your community, and the importance of putting yourself first and maintaining a solid work-life balance.

There is also some discussion of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) versus Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs) and how the experiences in each compare and contrast.
