Black Apollo of Science The Life of Ernest Everett Just by Kenneth R. Manning

This biography illuminates the racial attitudes of an elite group of American scientists and foundation officers. It is the story of a complex and unhappy man. It blends social, institutional, black, and political history with the history of science.


'Among the finest biographies I have ever read. Manning's book wins my highest praise...It is so well written and meticulously is a pleasure to read.'
The New York Review of Books

'A unique contribution to not only Black history, but also to American history and to the history of science.'
The Black Collegian
