The 24th Conference for African American Researchers in the Mathematical Sciences was held at Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study on July 11th through the 14th. This event, also called CAARMS24 for short, culminated with 9 invited technical speakers and over 15 student poster presenters. Many Princeton alumni in the mathematical sciences, two of them former PhD students of ORFE Professor Massey, and many others from all across the country celebrated the four day exchange of technical research ideas at a closing banquet in the Louis A. Simpson building. While speaking at the banquet, Professor Massey emphasized the importance of this conference to the African American mathematical community. He asked attendees to remember how the numbers of African American PhD's in the mathematical sciences can grow exponentially by becoming prolific academic researchers themselves.
