This colloquium is a hybrid event. It will take place in 340 West Hall and via a YouTube live stream link:

In 1972, Willie Hobbs Moore became the first African-American woman to receive a PhD in physics, right here at the University of Michigan. On the 50th anniversary of this historic event, I will:

- discuss some of Dr. Hobbs Moore's biographical highlights,

- provide an overview of her dissertation research,

- share some memories of my friendship with Willie and her family before and after her untimely passing in 1994.
