I remembered hearing about Katherine Johnson in recent history when Hidden Figures trailers came out. I never did end up seeing the movie (but I intend to!) and had forgotten about why I was so interested in it. After reading this book I was reminded of who Katherine Johnson is and was so amazed by her tenacity and hard work. She kept fighting for the ability to work in a STEM field despite the many obstacles in her way due to being both a woman and an African-American. She never gave up on her dreams and went on to be one of the most important people in NASA. She checked computer mathematics for errors and was known as a human computer. I’m absolutely fascinated by her. I highly recommend this book!

Thank you to Ebony Joy Wilkins and DK for making DK life stories: Katherine Johnson available to me.
