SUMMARY Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race FREE DOWNLOAD Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race 107 The phenomenal true story of the Black female mathematicians at NASA whose calculations helped fuel some of America's greatest achievements in space Now a major motion picture starring Taraji P Henson Octavia Spencer Janelle Monae Kirsten Dunst and Kevin CostnerBefore 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. I saw the movie before I read the book and I am honestly not sure whether that was a good or bad thing I loved the movie and I loved the book but they are very differentGenerally the book is a very fast paced and interesting read about the black women who worked at the Langley Air Force Base in Hampton Virginia and their many and varied contributions to the field of aeronautical and astronautical research It is part biography part history of NASA part history of segregation part history of the civil rights movement part history of the Virginia peninsula and part history of women s rights It is absolutely fascinatingThat being said the book is very different from the movie so don t go into it expecting them to be the same The movie is deeply touching but it is actually fairly inaccurate and it has been pretty aggressively whitewashed see re the Kevin Costner character I think it is good to both see the movie and read the book because one of the critical differences and the difference that I think is missed entirely by the movie to its great detriment is the way in which issues of segregation were actually tackled at Langley The movie makes it appear that enlightened white men of power were responsible for Langley s integration when in fact the integration of Langley was almost entirely borne organically and of necessity The book does a good job of explaining this whereas that aspect of the movie is almost entirely fictionalized I thought the movie took away some of the women s victories in this area Katherine Johnson for example never went to the colored bathroom She just used the regular unlabeled bathroom and no one ever told her not to but the book gives the women credit for their small yet trailblazing acts of defianceOne other note the book actually covers uite a bit of complex scientific detail but it is entirely readable to the laypersonI highly highly recommend this book

    Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race [Pdf New] A truly inspiring story about women who paved the way of scientific progress when there were so many barriers put in front of them by the world already; their education, their race, their gender. I loved learning about all of the women in this book and how women, and in particular, women of colour, were such core members of NACA's team as it eventually built itself into NASA.

    It's infuriating that so many of thes
