Description:  This inspiring biography tells the story of Katherine Johnson, an African American mathematician. An inspiring figure in the history of STEM, she eventually worked on the mission to send a man to the moon.  Her story is brought to life in the new movie "Hidden Figures".

Ashay says, "The STEM Trailblazer books are much needed in our schools and libraries. Each book focuses on an important African American in the field of science and math. Katherine Johnson was a mathematical genius.  She was instrumental in making Nasa's Space Program a success.  In 1961, her expert calculations made it possible for John Glenn's space shuttle to return home safely.  She was a pioneer in math and she opened alot of doors.  Kudos to Katherine Johnson and the other great black women pioneers at Nasa who fought racism and gender equality and made their people proud. Great books, buy them today!"
