Slowly but surely, Detroit is becoming a hub for technology and innovation. With large-scale STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) conferences such as this month’s AfroTech and the 2019 National Society of Black Engineers convention eyeing Detroit as their host city, diversity in the field has become a major talking point.
Wayne State University’s ongoing sesquicentennial celebration featured a special program honoring some of its outstanding alumni and faculty.
Honored alumni and faculty included Wei-Zen Wei, the developer of HER2 breast cancer vaccine, and George Shirley, the first black tenor to perform a leading role at the Metropolitan Opera Theater, both of whom were present for the ceremony.
At The Neighborhoods, we’re interested in hearing from everybody in Detroit about what matters most to you.
