The book, which inspired the movie of the same name and is SUNY Oneonta’s 2017-18 Common Read selection, tracks the careers of three African American female mathematicians who worked behind the scenes at NASA and its predecessor the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics doing complex mathematical calculations.
