The Black Heroes of Mathematics – free to attend

2 October 2020 12:00-13:00

In this lecture, Dr. Nira Chamberlain looks 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!’

This lecture is free to attend, but you must register to receive joining instructions. Find out more and register here: https://www.fpm.org.uk/events/the-black-heroes-of-mathematics/
