Today is the 90th birthday of Evelyn Boyd Granville, who was the second African American woman to earn a PhD in Mathematics.  To celebrate the occasion, Evelyn Lamb gave her a call and created this post about Granville for her Scientific American blog, Roots of Unity.  Thanks to Evelyn, who blogged about GGSTEM on her own grandmother’s birthday, for the heads up!
