The Black Heroes of Mathematics

Tue, 7 July 2020 16:00 – 17:30 BST

In this Public Lecture, ICMS are honoured to welcome Dr. Nira Chamberlain to discuss Black 'Hidden Figures' of mathematics. Dr. Chamberlain will look at the Black Heroes of Mathematics. The 2017 film, Hidden Figures, is based on the true story of a group of black female mathematicians that served as the brains behind calculating the momentous launch of the NASA astronaut John Glenn into orbit. However, these mathematicians of colour are not the only ‘Hidden Figures’. Nira will discuss other inspirational men and women who overcame obstacles to prove that ‘mathematics is truly for everybody!’
