Joy Carter Minor is no stranger to a tough fight. As a black female oceanographer and engineer, she faced down opposition and entrenched obstruction at every turn of her upward career. Despite it, she carved out a definition for herself and her beliefs on her terms, always moving forward.
Unflinching, uncompromising, and unapologetic, Forward From the Sea boldly challenges the belief that America, especially its government, runs by the rules of meritocracy, where only the most qualified and best people get promotions, recognition, and a place in history.
