    • Notice how it didn’t say “black female mathematician” even though she is. This is how you correctly write a headline.

    • This woman was amazingly brilliant with mathematics. She worked her entire life to prove the not just women but people of color deserve to be treated with respect and equality. She’s also the reason NASA phased out “colored” bathrooms and coffee makers, and helped other women of color get jobs!

    • NASA had dozens of women working as human calculators. They were interchangeable. Von Braun and the other top scientists were not. They got us there, but that’s not “empowering” enough for Hollywood

    • The movie about this also works as a good example for the changing of the times. All the ladies typing the math found out they were being replaced by a computer that did their job 1000x faster. So what did they do? Learned how to use and fix the computer.
