Black in Math Week

Black in Math week is coming up from November 8th - 13th, 2020! It is a week on Twitter to celebrate community among and uplift Black mathematicians. Sometimes we're so spread out over different locations and different areas that in can be hard to find and keep track of each other. We're also often the only Black mathematician at our jobs.


You can find the page at @BlackInMath on Twitter and follow us for updates. Throughout the week, the twitter page will be highlighting profiles of Black mathematicians, Black Mathematicians in the media, advice to aspiring mathematicians, a focus on Black math educators, and all culminating on a movie night on Friday November 13th.


Join us on Twitter! More info on the week is below, as well as ways to donate!
