Mathematician Janiah Kyle, one of some 50 mathematicians featured in

Journeys of Black Mathematicians: Forging Resilience, was profiled in the June 13, 2024, issue of the weekly

*CrimeSEEN Examiner News*, serving Madison, Gibson, Crockett and Haywood counties in West Tennessee. Reporter Wendy Isom Mercer, who interviewed Kyle, writes: "This documentary is truly a must-see! . . . I hope every elementary, middle, and high school student in West Tennessee can watch it." Kyle notes: "I think seeing documentaries like 'Journeys of Black Mathematicians' would encourage a lot of people to pursue an education and a career in mathematics. I see this happen every time I watch the documentary with someone. They always walk away from it inspired!. . ."

##### 5.5.24

*Journeys of Black Mathematicians: Forging Resilience* was featured at the American Mathematical Society 2024 Spring Western Sectional Meeting at San Francisco State University. Dr. Hélène Barcelo of the Simons Laufer Mathematical Institute (SLMath) introduced the film.

Writing in Nature about

Journeys of Black Mathematicians: Forging Resilience, Noelle Sawyer noted: "Teaching and learning at HBCUs is a point of pride throughout the documentary. These are places where Black maths students are nurtured rather than 'othered'. Many interviewees describe how the representation and support they found at these colleges propelled them into the field."

##### 2.22.24

Following a screening of

Journeys of Black Mathematicians: Forging Resilience on February 15 at the University of Washington, student reporter Amiya McLean wrote in her

review in *The Daily*, "Black STEM faculty serve their students in dual capacities: not just as educators, but as role models for what students could be when they grow up. When students see representations of themselves in the fields they want to pursue, their dreams become more tangible."
