NOVA ‘Forgotten Genius’

Airs on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m.

Being the grandson of Alabama slaves, Percy Julian encountered every possible barrier in a deeply segregated America. He was a man of genius, devotion and determination. Being a black man made him an outsider, and he fought to make a place for himself in a country divided by bigotry. Eventually, however, he would find freedom in the laboratory.
