    This sweeping collective biography of American Black women in STEM careers brings the wide variety of their achievements into focus for middle-graders in this work by Coretta Scott King Honor Book author Bolden (Inventing Victoria, 2019). Including women from professions as diverse as computer science, marine biology, chemical engineering, and the medical sciences, each figure is given a few pages worth of description of their early personal life, educational pursuits, and career highlights, making for a somewhat formulaic approach to each woman's biography. Though the profiles necessarily lack detail, Bolden more than makes up for it in the variety of women featured, from the mid-1800s to today and including many unfamiliar names, such as video game developer Lisette Titre-Montgomery or marine biologist Joan Murrell Owens. Pullouts of vocabulary etymologies, quotes, and plenty of pictures of its subjects help bolster the biographies. Young people are sure to find intriguing role models among the many STEM all-stars in this comprehensive look at the achievements of gifted Black scientists and doctors. Final art not seen. Grades 5-8. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
