Bending the Arc
An intimate discussion with accomplished Black mathematicians
Wednesday, September 23 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
The National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) is deeply committed to encouraging young people of all backgrounds to engage with mathematics and to consider careers in STEM fields. As part of this commitment, MoMath is launching a new virtual program aimed at demystifying mathematics for Black youth. The program will consist of an online panel discussion followed by more intimate breakout room conversations that will give participants the opportunity to interact with leading Black mathematicians and scientists and to explore how these accomplished individuals have used math in their careers. The program will be hosted by former NFL (Baltimore Ravens) professional, current MIT Math PhD candidate, and MoMath Trustee John Urschel.
Special introduction by New York City Council Member and Co-Chair of the Council’s Black, Latino, and Asian Caucus, Adrienne E. Adams.
