Unheralded but Unbowed traces the history of African Americans in what we now call the "Knowledge Enterprise." But it also endeavors to "connect the dots" between the poorly understood work of Black scientists and engineers and the broad sweep of Black History, in which they are at once the products of the decades-long struggle of African Americans for an equal place at the table of America's benefits and actors playing critical roles in many of the advances. Centered around the stories of the high achievers recognized at the annual Black Engineer of the Year Awzards, the book closely examines the historical developments that brought them to this level of eminence, as it strives to illustrate for new generations the true import of their careers and accomplishments.
