Albert Einstein’s perspective on African Americans and race relations in the United States

Albert Einstein

One hundred years ago, a 36-year-old Albert Einstein presented the complete formulation of the General Theory of Relativity to the Prussian Academy of Sciences.

Albert Einstein, a physicist, was born in Ulm, Württemberg, Germany in 1879. Einstein grew up in a secular, middle-class Jewish family. Einstein deduced the well-known equation E=mc2 (Mass–energy equivalence), suggesting that tiny particles of matter could be converted into huge amounts of energy, foreshadowing the development of nuclear power. He is considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century.

In December, 1932, Einstein left Nazi Germany to live in the United States.

He died on April 18, 1955, in Princeton, New Jersey.
