The Adventures of Dr. Carolyn Brooks is the tale of an inspirational visit to a class of young students, who are interested in learning about Dr. Brooks’ career as a microbiologist. She explains everything from what bacteria is to what it was like to earn a scholarship to go to college in Alabama, persevere in the face of prejudice, and help with farming in Africa. The story is ultimately one of love – how the support and encouragement of those who care for us helps with all of life’s great things. Dr. Brooks encourages the students to chase their dreams.
