About This Item

HarperCollins, 2018-01-16. New.

Based on the New York Times bestselling book and the Academy Award–nominated movie, author Margot Lee Shetterly and illustrator Laura Freeman bring the incredibly inspiring true story of four black women who helped NASA launch men into space to picture book readers!

Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden were good at math…really good

They participated in some of NASA's greatest successes, like providing the calculations for America's first journeys into space And they did so during a time when being black and a woman limited what they could do But they worked hard They persisted And they used their genius minds to change the world

In this beautifully illustrated picture book edition, we explore the story of four female African American mathematicians at NASA, known as "colored computers," and how they overcame gender and racial barriers to succeed in a highly challenging STEM-based career

"Finally, the extraordinary lives of four African American women who helped NASA put the first men in space is available for picture book readers," proclaims Brightly in their article "18 Must-Read Picture Books of 2018" "Will inspire girls and boys alike to love math, believe in themselves, and reach for the stars"
