Dr. Mae Jemison, First Black Woman in Space, Wants Teens to Know It's OK to Not Always Do What You're Told

Dr. Mae Jemison, the first Black woman to travel to space, wants teens to follow their own path in life rather than trying to follow in her footsteps. She writes about her own journey in her new book “Find Where the Wind Goes: Moments From My Life.” In an interview with LX News, Jemison discusses why it was important to make the Black community feel included in her trip to space, and why her career as an astronaut is only just one piece of a multifaceted life.
