In research labs, university classrooms, NASA training facilities, and the administrative boardrooms of major institutions, African Americans have been important innovators, from early times to the present day.

African Americans in Science, Math, and Invention, Revised Edition explores the many astronauts, physicists, chemists, biologists, agriculture specialists, and others who have dedicated their lives to improving humankind's knowledge and understanding of the universe. Each entry provides a biographical profile, surveying significant events in that person's life related to his or her accomplishments in these fields, followed by an up-to-date further reading list on that individual. A general introduction presents an overview of African-American contributions, subject indexes list individuals by year of birth and by fields of activity, and a general bibliography lists resources relevant to the topic.

New and revised profiles include:

  • Patricia Era Bath
  • James Forten
  • Bernard A. Harris
  • Joan Higginbottom
  • William B. Purvis
  • John Brooks Slaughter
  • Valerie Thomas
  • Madame C.J. Walker.
