Before John Glenn orbited the Earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of professionals worked as "Human Computers," calculating the flight paths that would enable these historic achievements. Among these were a coterie of bright, talented African-American women. Segregated from their white counterparts by Jim Crow laws, these "colored computers," as they were known, used slide rules, adding machines, and pencil and paper to support America's fledgling aeronautics industry, and helped write the equations that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. Drawing on the oral histories of scores of these "computers," personal recollections, interviews with NASA executives and engineers, archival documents, correspondence, and reporting from the era, Hidden Figures recalls America's greatest adventure and NASA's groundbreaking successes through the experiences of five spunky, courageous, intelligent, determined, and patriotic women: Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, Christine Darden, and Gloria Champine. Moving from World War II through NASA's golden age, touching on the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the women's rights movement, Hidden Figures interweaves a history of scientific achievement and technological innovation with the intimate stories of five women whose work forever changed the world -- and whose lives show how out of one of America's most painful histories came one of its proudest moments.… (mais)

Hidden Figures is the story of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden who during one of the most turbulent periods in US history defied expectations and became respected workers in what became NASA. Their expertise in mathematics made them invaluable during the period of World War II and the space race of the 1960s. Their lives were not without strife as they survived family tragedies and worked with people who still harbored ill will toward African-Americans during the birth of the Civil Rights Movement.

This was an interesting story. It would have been better reading had it been told from the point of view of the women involved, telling their own stories rather than as a dry depiction of historical events. Otherwise this was a well written book detailing a unique group of women who succeeded in what was considered a man's world during a time when African-Americans lacked the respect of their peers. ( )

Good follow up to last year's Rocket Men ( )

What can I say? I did not enjoy this book. I think it should have been more about the women and what they did. The author touches on that mentioning papers they authored or helped author, but it's just a mention. I understand the importance that they played in Civil Rights and how understated their importance was to NASA, but I feel that a different writing style would have been a more memorable and enjoyable read.

Pains me to say this (and I realize how shallow it sounds), but I much preferred the movie.

Hidden Figures written by Margot Lee Shetterly is a story about three African American women who are not only living their lives during the Civil Rights era but also living in the south. They overcome the obstacles that they encounter along the way and in the end, make huge contributions to the United States space program. ( )
