    1. Copy received by the publisher at ALACovering the same topic in a more research-friendly format, this nonfiction book presents information about black women at NASA in a way that makes it a bit easier to follow the time line. There are also plentiful photographs to support the text, and informative sidebars that explain a variety of topics. I especially liked the last chapter, that talked about the impact of earlier women working at NASA on the state of women in science and technology today. The [...]

    2. This would be an excellent book to share with young women of all ethnicities. It can inspire them all as well as ensure them that women have played a part in history even though it is seldom recognized. It is also a good source of factual material.

    3. At ALA Midwinter 2017, Duchess Harris spoke to audiences about her book and her legacy as the granddaughter of one of NASA's hidden human computers. Growing up with that story in her family, she was inspired to pursue her own academic and career goals. Now she has co-authored this book that tells the story of those African American women who helped make the Space Race possible. Anyone who has seen the movie "Hidden Figures" has an idea of the prejudice and limitations these women had to deal wit [...]

    4. A great introduction to the black women of NASA and the history of computers (human and electronic). I liked the way historic events were mentioned to help put the women's education and training into perspective.

    5. Highly readable collective biography of the important roles that African American women had in space exploration research and ultimately space travel.

    6. Another great one from this author pairing that teachers and librarians can give to students writing reports.

    7. Great book! The history was very interesting and the pictures were great as well. The authors have done an excellent job of explaining what was happening and why during the time. I plan on donating this book to my daughter's middle school.
