Mr. Harding's Math Fun Fact
Marjorie Lee Browne was a prominent mathematician and educator who, in 1949, became only the third African-American woman to earn a doctorate in her field. Browne taught and researched for thirty years at North Carolina Central University (NCCU). She also served as the head of the department from 1951 to 1970. It is very likely that my aunt and uncle had a class with Dr. Browne. Both of them attended NCCU and majored in mathematics.
