Two Black Scholars at Brown University Awarded 2010 Salomon Faculty Research Awards

Each year Brown University offers cash awards to faculty members involved in research projects of exceptional merit. This year two of the winners are African Americans.

Carthene Bazemore-Walker, assistant professor of chemistry, will receive a cash award to foster her research into the bonding agents of marine bacteria.

Francoise N. Hamlin, an assistant professor of history and Africana studies, will use her research grant to study children who came of age during the civil rights movement. Her research is concentrating on children who were subjected to some form of trauma as a direct result of civil rights activities.
