Title: Hidden figures: the American dream and the untold story of the Black women mathematicians who helped win the space race
Author: Lee Shetterly, Margot, author.
Abstract: Before John Glenn orbited the earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Among these problem-solvers were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, some of the brightest minds of their generation.
