You’ve likely heard of John Glenn, Alan Shepard and Neil Armstrong, but unless you've seen the movie Hidden Figures, you probably don't know about Katherine Johnson, a female African-American research mathematician who made huge contributions at NASA during the Space Race. This video provides a rich angle for a unit on the Civil Rights Movement, Space Race, Women’s Rights Movement, STEM, or history of computing.
