Hidden Human Computers: The Black Women of NASA
Dozens of African American women worked for NASA as expert mathematicians from the 1940s to the 1960s and almost no one knew about it. Segregated within NASA facilities in Hampton, Va., well-educated Black women used slide rules and pencils to do the calculations for flights by astronauts John Glenn and Alan Shepherd.
In Hidden Human Computers, Harris and Sue Bradford Edwards explore this history, part of the Hidden Heroes series from ABDO Publishing. 6-12 grade reading level.
