This morning I was reminded of Vivien Thomas–an FB friend had posted a picture of him from Reddit.  I vaguely remembered an HBO movie starring Yassin Bey (Mos Def) about a him, and decided to deepen my knowledge.  With some link digging, I found the article, by Kanite McCabe, that the movie Something the Lord Made had been inspired by.

It’s a wonderful read that explores racism, hidebound tradition, and doing science.
