Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race
3 journalers for this copy...
I got this softcover at a local Savers thrift shop. It's the basis for the 2016 film
, an inspirational - if sometimes infuriating - look at the real-life trials of the women whose computational skills made the space program successful.
[There's a TV Tropes page
on the film, with some entertaining tidbits.]
