|While preparing the March "Interview," Astronomy contributing editor William Schomaker asked Neil deGrasse Tyson director of New York City's Charles Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History to talk about how other blacks criticized him for "wasting" his talents on science. Tyson responded with, "I cannot tell it better than how I wrote it for my memoir." Due to space constraints, we were unable to include the question and response in the magazine.|
