"Duchess Harris is a professor at Macalester College and never had the chance to meet her late grandmother. Still, she has always considered Miriam Mann an inspiration.“I'm proud of her, I'm named after her,” Harris said. Raising her family in Virginia with a degree in chemistry, Mann went from a predominately black college in the segregated south to working for NASA from 1943-1966."
