Summary
"From World War II through NASA's golden age, four African American women confidently,courageously stepped into the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (now known as NASA). Their job? To provide the mathematical calculations that would help increase airplane production during wartime and eventually send the United States into space for the very first time. During this time of racial and gender inequality, these women used their mathematical talents to serve their country and change the minds of others about what a scientist and a mathematician and an engineer look like. Hidden Figures follows the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, who participated in some of the United States' greatest aeronautic successes. Until now, their stories have been untold, but these women lived through, and persevered, against the backdrop of some of the biggest movements ever to shape our nation's history: the Civil Rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the fight for gender equality. With photographs and rich historical detail, Margot Lee Shetterly brings to life the struggles these four women, and others, overcame to forever change the face of air and space travel." -- Container
