My Comment :
Hidden numbers received for being the hitherto neglected history of African American women a lot of attention that NASA helped build (or more precisely, the NASA Langley center). The average cooked the story of women in the cliché "heroes" often used; The history of Cava Shetterley beyond.
Of course, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, et al are surprise, inspiration and strong, but their own Their role modesty says in a NACA / NASA story, not to improve many black pioneers Jim Crow era, or care of praise. They came to be "the first" to prepare the way for those who would come after them.
This Shetterley shows agile intergenerational ties in Langley, as well as African Americans, the professional team is often when the cam and community chart. Portions of the book were tail are fascinating to me who were around to link the black community in southern Virginia, and how it progressed to employment and residence in Hampton until the 20th century.
Shetterley's prose looked better in the minutiae of women's lives, but the NACA / NASA parties were equally interesting - and mathematical statements and Shetterley aircraft is masterful. It was never pedantic, but never simplistic. When I got to the end, I was disappointed that there are more pages, but also hungry for more stories about the intersection of race, gender and science!
Get this book! She is an excellent companion climbing Nathalia Holt girl missiles and Lily Koppel astronaut club wives for a comparison of the different experiences of women in the space race.
