Women Who Count: Honoring African American Women Mathematicians
by Shelly M. Jones
Join MoMath's 2022–2023 Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier and author Shelly M. Jones for a discussion of Shelly's Women Who Count: Honoring African American Women Mathematicians, a children's activity book highlighting the lives and work of 29 African American women mathematicians, including Dr. Christine Darden, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Dorothy Vaughan from the award-winning book and movie Hidden Figures. Although the book is geared toward children in grades 3–8, it is appropriate for all ages.
This is an online-only event; all registrants will be participating remotely. Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
