Andrea Lawrence featured on Ada Lovelace Day 2011

I am highlighting my dear friend, Andrea Lawrence, who has been on the faculty at Spelman College since 1983.  She is a pioneer, a perserverer, a dedicated educator and a super-mom/ super grandmom!

I interviewed Andrea as part of the Computing Educators Oral History Project in 2007.   She spoke of some of the difficulties she experienced as the only woman  of color in her graduate program at Georgia tech in this short video  you may view as an  AVI file in new window OR as a youtube video in new window

Andrea was also featured as part of the Computer Scientists of the African Diaspora pro.ject.
