The uplifting, amazing true story—a New York Times bestseller

This edition of Margot Lee Shetterly’s acclaimed book is perfect for young readers. It is the powerful story of four African-American female mathematicians at NASA who helped achieve some of the greatest moments in our space program. Now 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.

This book brings to life the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, who lived through the Civil Rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the movement for gender equality, and whose work forever changed the face of NASA and the country.

A Complete Summary of Hidden Figures

‘Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race’ is an autobiography written by Margot Lee Shetterly about African-American women who greatly contributed to the US winning the space race.

Back in the 1940s, women began joining the workforce because there was great lack of workers due to the many men who were fighting in the Second World War. There was one place that was in desperate need of intelligent and hard-working people. That place was NACA. Many African-American women applied for the jobs there with different levels of success. Some women succeeded in laying down entry-level jobs in engineering positions, while several of them ended up contributing to the American launch that sent the first man to the moon.

As we read the book, we can see that the author organized every chapter in a somewhat loose chronological order, and that every chapter is based around a central theme. The book could be a problem if the reader does not possess adequate knowledge about rocket science. But those who continue reading will find that this is an inspiring story.

It the tradition of Hidden Figures, debut author Patricia Pearson offers a beautifully written account of the remarkable but often forgotten group of female fighter pilots who answered their country’s call in its time of need during World War II.

At the height of World War II, the US Army Airforce faced a desperate need for skilled pilots—but only men were allowed in military airplanes, even if the expert pilots who were training them to fly were women. Through grit and pure determination, 1,100 of these female pilots—who had to prove their worth time and time again—were finally allowed to ferry planes from factories to bases, to tow targets for live ammunition artillery training, to test repaired planes and new equipment, and more.

Though the WASPs lived on military bases, trained as military pilots, wore uniforms, marched in review, and sometimes died violently in the line of duty, they were civilian employees and received less pay than men doing the same jobs and no military benefits, not even for burials.

Their story is one of patriotism, the power of positive attitudes, the love of flying, and the willingness to do good with no concern for personal gain.

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.

In this book we’re going to cover:

  • Dorothy Vaughan
  • Katherine Johnson
  • Mary Jackson
  • Christine Darden
  • What A Movie!
  • And much, much more!
