We will read Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. This nonfiction book tells the true story of the Black female mathematicians who worked at NASA's Langley Aeronautical Laboratory in Hampton, Virginia, starting in the early 1940s. These pioneering women known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets and astronauts into space, even as Jim Crow laws forced them to be segregated from their white counterparts. March is Women’s history month, and to celebrate and commemorate, we will discuss this book.
