African American mathematicians exists in a variety of professions and institution types. However, this group of mathematicians is not integrated across the spectrum. These brings up the following questions. What are the optimal strategies to allow for more participation of African American mathematicians at all levels of the mathematical profession? What are realistic goals and directions that should be thought about to strengthen the connections between African American mathematicians? What kind of events or set of events could be created to support this?
The purpose of this gathering of African American mathematicians from around the country is to reflect and plan on how to address the above questions.
