Usually the first place we look for biographical information about individual mathematicians is the MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive: http://turnbull.mcs.st-and.ac.uk/history/ Also, see Prof. Scott Williams' series of pages, "Mathematicians of the African Diaspora," created to exhibit the accomplishments of the peoples of Africa and the African Diaspora within the Mathematical Sciences. http://www.math.buffalo.edu/mad/ Next, see "The Faces of Science: African Americans in the Sciences": https://webfiles.uci.edu/mcbrown/display/banneker.html I hope this will give you a good start on your project. -Doctor Sarah, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
