The #1 New York Times bestseller The phenomenal true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA whose calculations helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space. Soon to be a major motion picture starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae, Kirsten Dunst, and Kevin Costner. 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. Originally relegated to teaching math in the South’s segregated public schools, they were called into service during the labor shortages of World War II, when America’s aeronautics industry was in dire need of anyone who had the right stuff. Suddenly, these overlooked math whizzes had a shot at jobs worthy of their skills, and they answered Uncle Sam’s call, moving to Hampton, Virginia and the fascinating, high-energy world of the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory. Even as Virginia’s Jim Crow laws required them to be segregated from their white counterparts, the women of Langley’s all-black “West Computing” group helped America achieve one of the things it desired most: a decisive victory over the Soviet Union in the Cold War, and complete domination of the heavens. Starting in World War II and moving through to the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement and the Space Race, Hidden Figures follows the interwoven accounts of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Christine Darden, four African American women who participated in some of NASA’s greatest successes. It chronicles their careers over nearly three decades they faced challenges, forged alliances and used their intellect to change their own lives, and their country’s future.

Summary, Analysis & Review of Margot Lee Shetterly’s Hidden Figures by Instaread Preview: Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly is a history of black women who were mathematicians and engineers in twentieth-century aeronautics and space programs. It focuses particularly on black women who served as human computers as they performed calculations at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia during and after World War II. During the war, the United States was desperate for mathematicians and engineers to work in aeronautics. With many men fighting in the war, women took on professional jobs. A number of black women applied for positions at Langley. Among them was Dorothy Vaughan, who had excelled in mathematics as a young woman and had then gone into teaching. Pay in segregated schools was much less than Vaughan could make as a human computer performing calculations for engineers. So she changed careers… PLEASE NOTE: This is a Summary, Analysis & Review of the book and NOT the original book.

In Hidden Figures, Margot Lee Shetterly reveals the real-life stories of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Christine Darden — the black women of NASA who braved the insurmountable and conquered the impossible. Even with Virginia's Jim Crow imposing segregation laws, these four African-American women defied the odds against both racial discrimination and gender bias. They were among Langley's all-black "West Computing", a group of women who proved invaluable in the pursuit of both the triumph over the Soviet Union and America's dominion on the race to the heavens. Behind John Glenn's orbital flight and Neil Armstrong's iconic moonwalk were these exceptional "human computers". Armed with slide rules, papers, and pencils, they created satellite, rocket, and airplane designs and helped guarantee the nation's victory in World War II, the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Space Race. Margot Lee Shetterly's Hidden Figures is a three-decade chronicle of the intertwining lives of the four women as they formed friendships, fought for equality, rose above obstacles, and transformed their lives as well as America's future.

Hidden Figures Katherine Johnson: One of the Black Woman Mathematicians Who Worked with NASA on the Space Race Book Preview: Katherine Coleman Goble Johnson is one of the most important pioneers from the American space movement. She is a physicist and a research mathematician who has calculated orbits and trajectories for historic space missions. This includes the first flight to walk on the moon. In addition, she has assisted in developing navigation systems to guide astronauts through space. Without perseverance, her career may have never left the ground. A combination of her own determination to pursue her dreams and her father's push to keep his children in school helped her to overcome gender and race discrimination, leading to an exceptional life filled with professional acclamations and personal fulfillment. Katherine Coleman was born as the youngest child of four in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, on August 26, 1918. Her father, Joshua, was a farmer who was employed as a janitor for extra work. Her mother, Joylette, worked as a teacher in the local community. As a young child, Katherine demonstrated early signs of being a math prodigy, counting everything from the number of steps between home and church, to the number of dishes that she had to wash. She believes that her affinity for numbers was passed down from her father, who used to divide trees by the pieces of lumber that could be sourced. One of Katherine's favorite childhood stories talks about how her father had a knack of solving arithmetic problems that stumped many of her teachers.

The movie Hidden Figures (which debuted in theaters around the world on December 25th, 2016) grossed a total of $206 million. This number, which was four times the overall budget for the film, gave physical manifestation to the underlying craving that people have for stories of unsung heroes. They utilize their money and their support as praise and approval for the efforts that these women gave, and it is an educated lesson for the masses to continue telling their stories well after they are gone. The movie has been nominated for over 70 awards and won a whopping 28 of them. Needless to say, the writers of our history books should have done their jobs better. This book will pick up where the historians left off. It will delve into the lives of four incredibly important women, shining lights on their early lives and educations that led them to some of the greatest contributions America's space program has seen in its history. It will address the shift in politics as African-Americans began to gain more rights via federal law, and it will document the transitional years these women worked in. This book will talk of how they broke all traditional chains and stereotypes of African-American women in the workforce, and it will leave you breathless at their accomplishments, as well as the symbolism that they shined throughout the decades they thrived within.
