Previously we posted that Neil deGrasse Tyson may have been the first African-American on the cover of PopSci’s in its 140+ year history, however, there’s a small collage with Mike Tyson from 1996, along with maybe Bruce Seldon. Popular Science November 1996 @ Google Books. We’re not sure which fight this is from, it could be the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson in September of 1996.
So for now, Neil deGrasse Tyson is the first african-american scientist on the cover of Popular Science 🙂 And the second Tyson! If you have access to more covers and can find anything, let us know.
