Etta Falconer
My grandmother, Etta Falconer, (or “Mama” as I knew her) was among the first 10 African-American women to earn a Ph.D. in Mathematics. She earned her Ph.D. in 1969 at the height of the Civil Rights movement and dedicated more than 4 decades of her life to increasing the number of black women entering STEM fields.
