Inaugural Lecture: The Black Heroes of Mathematics
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’.
In this multi-media talk, Nira discusses other inspirational men and women of colour who overcame obstacles to prove that ‘mathematics is truly for everybody!’
For those attending the lecture in-person, refreshments will be served in the EHB atrium from 4.30pm.
