David Blackwell is a famous African-American mathematician who has contributed so much in the field of mathematics in the statisticalfield theory. David was born in 1919 in Illinois. He died in 2010 at the age of 91. He was born to a father who was a worker in a railway station and his mother was s stay at home mum who took care of his younger siblings because he was the first born. The statistician theorist was born in a family of six. He was very apt when it came to mathematics, though he did not concentrate so much on algebra and trigonometry which he says that though he could be able to do it, it was not much more intriguingfor him to do such topics, what he has been so much interested in was geometry since it connected with activity as well as motion. He asserted loving the idea of a helping line where a problem would be solved, that seemed previously impossible.
