Description

Before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as human computers calculated the numbers that would launch rockets into space. Among these were a group of exceptionally talented African American women, and even as Virginias Jim Crow laws required them to be segregated from their white counterparts, the women helped America achieve a decisive victory over the Soviet Union. Hidden Figures follows the interwoven accounts of four African American women who participated in some of NASAs greatest successes.
