Susanna Greer, Chief Scientific Officer at the V Foundation for Cancer Research, shared a post by India Jackson, Georgia State University, shared on LinkedIn:

“Congratulations to India Jackson!

The first Black Woman to receive a PhD in Physics from Georgia State University.

I’m so proud of you!”

Quoting India Jackson’s post:

“It is my honor to announce that I have made history as the first black woman to receive a PhD in Physics from Georgia State University!

During this journey I attained:

BS MATH
MS MATH
MS PHYSICS
MS Computer Science
PhD Astrophysics

3 NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration Internships

Frontier Development Lab Postdoctoral Summer Fellowship.

Covered GSU Magazine, featured in the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, spoke about space weather on the NPR and other countless media and academic platforms!

I have also recently completed my first book on the science behind the zodiacs.

It is a free book however I am accepting donations.

Your support over the past 7 years have been so significant that I felt the need to acknowledge some in my dissertation!

To my sisters in science at African American Women in Physics, Inc, those who contributed to my GoFundMe, Grady Memorial Hospital for giving me a life saving hysterectomy, and the Eastside of Atlanta for ALWAYS holding me down!”
