"What Does a Scientist Look Like?!: Diversity in Science"

Dr. Cooper will tell us about his company, Rheaply, his personal experiences as a scientist, and the importance of well-funded, well-managed science in Chicago. As an African American who is also a neuroscientist and entrepreneur, Cooper is familiar with the challenges and discomfort of being one of the few, or only, blacks in science. Now, he considers it a passion of his to make himself visible and available to other aspiring scientists of color.

Maggie Rowe

 


"Sin Bravely: Memories of Spiritual Disobedience"

As a young girl, Maggie Rowe took the idea of salvation very seriously. Growing up in a moderately religious household in suburban Chicago, her fear of eternal damnation turned into a childhood terror that drove her to become an outrageously dedicated born-again Christian. Finally, at nineteen, crippled by her fear of sin and eternal damnation, she checked herself in to an Evangelical psychiatric facility, and that is where her journey really began. Learn how one woman finally found the middle ground between Heaven and Hell.
