Equal Opportunity Schools is celebrating Black History Month by recognizing inspirational Black educators. Kelly Miller was noticed at a young age for his aptitude in mathematics, leading to a scholarship to Howard University. He later became the first black man admitted to Johns Hopkins University, working on post-graduate work in mathematics, physics and astronomy. Miller returned to Howard University to teach sociology (a first) and became the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. For over a half century, Miller was an important figure in the intellectual life of black America.
