Badass female mathematician is a phrase used far too seldom, but no other will do for the “colored computers” at the heart of this inspiring tale of the African American women who worked for NASA in the 1960s. Three key members of John Glenn’s orbital team fight Jim Crow as well as the white men who resent their brilliance, and they do it with steadfast determination, and in high heels.
Hidden Figures is “both a dazzling piece of entertainment and a window into history” (Time).
