Greetings to all at Wednesday Journal and the suburbs it serves. My family and I enjoyed living in Oak Park before I moved to a large attractive retirement complex in Williamsville, N.Y., 11 years ago. I’m writing to applaud the superb public television documentary Forgotten Genius [NOVA, Feb. 6], featuring Dr. Percy Julian. It portrayed the goals, accomplishments, and sad obstacles of an outstanding scientist and fine citizen and his family.

The message was loud and clear, leaving us with the challenge of appreciation and justice to guide our attitudes and actions. Many of our residents, including both Marge Weber and I who have lived in Oak Park, congratulate the television station and those who funded and those who developed the presentation.
