What is the hardest part about being an African-Ameican woman and becoming a mathematician?
I am asking this because I know it is very hard for an African-American woman to major in mathematics and work in this field. In addition, I am curious about how these mathematicians overcome the obstacles that they face.
I can't really answer this personally. However, I offer the following links that I hope will be useful.
This is a link to the Association for Women in Mathematics. There is a link for students and a link for careers with a lot of great information.
Historical information: "Mathematicians of the African Diaspora."
Here is an article on encouraging black women to join mathematics.
