On June 21-23, 1995, a Conference for African American Researchers in the Mathematical Sciences was held at MSRI in Berkeley, California. The conference presented current research in a broad range of mathematical areas to stimulate cross disciplinary discussion and highlight future trends. Workshops were held to discuss: the ways that all mathematics researchers can encourage the greater participation of under-represented minorities in their fields, a summer program for minority graduate students, and career development for researchers and professionals in the mathematical sciences. Information about events related to that conference and some publications from that conference can be accessed here.
