The Race in Space conference is a first of its kind event that seeks to explore the issues of race, culture and nationality in the colonization of space stations, planets and stars in space.  This two day conference will highlight astronauts, researchers, artists and authors who have studied both the realities and imaginative events involving the dynamics of race and space settlements. 

Keynote Address:

Dr. Jemison will present her groundbreaking project the "100 Year Starship," which has set a goal of interstellar travel within the next 100 years. The address will establish a specific need for minority scientists trained in the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), and the specific and transferrable skills necessary to develop technology for interstellar travel and space settlement.
