The African Presence in Mathematics:

the Role of African Women and A New Generation of Black Inventors
“You don't need anybody's permission to be a  great mathematician”

It was during last years British Science week that Michael Williams first learned of Dr. Nira Chamberlain. Williams' organisation put together an event entitled “2 Million Years of Hidden African Inventions and Innovations” where he invited Dr. Donald Palmer, senior professor at the Royal Veterinary College and one of the scientists and inventors featured in the ground-breaking title Black Scientists and Inventors in the UK: Millenniums of Inventions and Innovations” to do a presentation, which included his own role models.
