Wonderful and Inspirational

By Mrs. Forbes

Comments about PBS NOVA: Percy Julian: Forgotten Genius DVD:

I show this video every year after the AP chemistry exam. The students love it and they understand the chemistry presented. It sparks great conversation and is a great way to end the year. You can accomplish anything even if it is hard and there are many things against you.

I was Shocked

Comments about PBS NOVA: Percy Julian: Forgotten Genius DVD:

I was shocked, dishartened, angry, insane at the truth. Thank-you PBS for this enlightening documentary about a great american. I am a functional user of his discoveries to this day and always remind my physicians of the roots of the medicines they now use on myself and other patients and the industry somewhat takes for granted.
I have seen this documentary many years ago and still use this information in my classes.
