ORLANDO, Fla., April 8 Dr. Mae Jemison, former astronaut and first black woman to travel in space, will speak at the Committee on Minority Affairs luncheon at the Peabody Hotel in Orlando on Monday, April 8, during the 223rd national meeting of the American Chemical Society.

She is now president of The Jemison Group, Inc., a professor of environmental studies at Dartmouth College, and Director of the Jemison Institute for Advancing Technology in Developing Countries. The Institute is currently working on S.E.E.ing the Future (Science, Engineering and Education), a project considering the role of public funding in science and technology research. Dr. Jemison also works on sustainable development through the Institute.

Born in Decatur, Ala., and raised in Chicago, Dr. Jemison entered Stanford University when she was 16. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering and fulfilled the requirements for an A.B. in African and Afro-American studies.
