Hidden Figures tells the story of the African-American women who worked as computers to solve problems for engineers and others at NASA. The book focuses on how these women overcame discrimination and racial segregation to become American achievers in mathematics, scientific and engineering history. A successful film adaptation of the book was released in 2016 and received an nomination for Best Picture for the 2017 Academy Awards.
