The Math Department will be hosting a film screening of Journeys of Black Mathematicians: Forging Resilience on Monday, Feb. 26 from 8-9 p.m. in Park 180.

Journeys of Black Mathematicians: Forging Resilience (2024, 58 min.) is the first of two documentary films produced by Zala Films as part of the Journeys of Black Mathematicians project started in collaboration with SLMath (MSRI) in 2020.

Forging Resilience traces the evolution of a culture of Black scholars, scientists, and educators. The film follows the stories of prominent pioneers, showing how the challenges they faced and their triumphs are reflected in the experiences of today's working Black mathematicians. Their mathematical descendants in turn, are contemporary college students and K-12 children across the U.S. who are learning that they belong in mathematics and STEM.
