Mathematicians of the African Diaspora

Professor of Mathematics Scott W. Williams has created this website dedicated to the ancient and modern achievements of the peoples of Africa and the African Diaspora within the Mathematical Sciences. One of the purposes of this website is to disprove proclamations by some that "The Negro is incapable of succeeding." Some examples of such false statements are provided along with a longer list of accomplishments. The website includes a collection of Profiles of 500 Black Mathematicians, describes the accomplishments of "the greatest Black Mathematicians," and offers separate sections highlighting research mathematicians, Black Women in Math Sciences, and Black Mathematicians outside the U.S. Additional historical information and current statistics are also available in various formats, from posters, to articles, to historical timelines.
