Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures is about three African American women  mathematicians  and the  vital roles they played in the space program.  It was an amazing movie that carried an emotional punch on many levels.  I had no idea what problems NASA  faced to get the first American astronaut into the atmosphere.  Nor the day-to-day impact of segregation.
The intelligence of the three women the movie is based on leaves me in awe.  Katherine Johnson started high school at age ten, graduated at fourteen and graduated from West Virginia State College at age eighteen.  Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan were also highly intelligent women who broke through the gender-color barrier.  I don't want to mention much more in case you haven't seen the movie.  But if you have seen it and are curious about how closely the movie followed the actual events, historyvshollywood did an interesting article on the film.

Highly recommended.
