"Gazing up at the stars, Benjamin Banneker longed to understand how and why things worked as they did.  In a time when most black Americans were slaves, Banneker lived a life of freedom and became known as America's first black man of science.  His great thirst for knowledge and his freedom provided him with many exciting opportunities.  He helped survey Washington, D.C., and became the first black American to write an Almanac.  Through his accomplishments, he helped advance the cause of equality for African Americans."
