Hidden Figures is an exciting biography

I loved this book for several reasons. First of all, it was a true story of a group of brilliant black women who succeeded in the aeronautics industry of America that eventually became NASA.

Below are 14 scientists, mathematicians, and engineers who have made significant contributions to furthering the human race for people of all color.
