One City One Book: African-American Tech Pioneers in Silicon Valley
Learn about the little known contributions of African-American men and women in the Bay Area’s high tech industry in a presentation by digital storyteller Kathy Cotton. For her forthcoming documentary, "A Place at the Table," Cotton interviewed African Americans that were introduced to technology, found their niche, and flourished in Silicon Valley increasing the profitability of many companies through their innovative ideas and inventions. Free and open to the public, this program is part of a series celebrating Walnut Creek’s 2017 One City One Book, “Hidden Figures” by Margot Lee Shetterly.
