“Hidden Figures” by Margot Lee Shetterly

Book Cover

A luminous, eye-opening account of the unseen black women, called computers, who worked alongside the scientists and engineers who perfected the fighter jets during World War II, and the space rockets of the Space Race. This book should be required reading in every school in our country. In an era of segregation and deprivation, these women fought to win their place in a desegregated space agency that needed their skill, in spite of the color of their skin. This book was a thrill to read, and I recommend it highly.
