Benjamin Banneker (1731-1806): Early African-American Astronomer, Philomath, and Clockmaker
Much misinformation about Banneker's life and work has appeared in print. In her talk, Mary Jane Dapkus will attempt to dispel some of it and to trace what is known about Banneker's extraordinary journey from tobacco farmer to astronomer, almanac maker, and surveyor who earned the respect of some of Colonial America's greatest scientific minds. She will also attempt to describe the one and only clock known to have been produced by Banneker.
