Hidden Figures: The Untold Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race [9780008201326]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

THE BOOK THAT INSPIRED THE FILM FROM TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX. 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.

Before John Glenn orbited the earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, some of the brightest minds of their generation, known as 'human computers', used pencils and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Starting in World War II and moving through the Cold War and the Space Race, Hidden Figures is a powerful, revelatory tale of race, discrimination and achievement in the modern world. Now a major motion picture starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae, Kirsten Dunst and Kevin Costner.
