    DEVELOPING AFRICAN AMERICANS IN MATHEMATICS by Dr. Abdulalim Shabazz

    DLL Editor's note: In this 1991 interview Dr. Shabazz provided a comprehensive, but succinct summary of his goals and achievements as a teacher and mentor of mathematics for black students. Recently the HBCU community mourned the passing of Dr. Maya Anjelou with extensive memorials, as it should have because she was a master teacher of the humanities who inspired so many of us.  But why was the passing of Dr. Shabazz, a master teacher of the most fundamental component of STEM, given so little notice ???????
