Brazen - Mae Jemison

MAE JEMISON, Astronaut (1956 - …) USA
Mae Jemison decided that being a Black woman isn’t going to be an obstacle to fulfill her dreams. She is the first Black woman sent to space. And the first female astronaut to play in ‘Star Trek’. If we believe, we can go far, really far.

This episode is part of the series "Brazen" which portraits 30 revolutionary women who wrote their own destinies and changed the world! Each in their own way, those Brazen ladies were out to tear down prejudice and bring aspiration and hope to the next generations.
