As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes

"Maggie, a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her twelve-year old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent, a retired curmudgeon with a desire for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper, named Daka, Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine, race track, strip club, and a dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart."--Back of container

"Les "ordinateurs de couleur". Tel était le descriptif de poste des mathématiciennes afro-américaines Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson et Christine Darden, employées à la NASA dans les années soixante. Grâce à ces femmes, les États-Unis envoyaient l'astronaute John Glenn en orbite en 1962, dix mois seulement après Youri Gagarine. Pourtant, leurs noms sont restés inconnus du grand public pendant des décennies. Dans une Amérique rongée par la ségrégation raciale, sans compter le sexisme auquel elles devaient faire face, leurs carrières ont été, pour ainsi dire, oblitérées."

Nella Virginia segregazionista degli anni Sessanta, la legge non permette ai neri di vivere insieme ai bianchi. Uffici, toilette, mense, sale d'attesa, bus sono rigorosamente separati. Da una parte ci sono i bianchi, dall'altra ci sono i neri. La NASA, a Langley, non fa eccezione. Reclutate dalla prestigiosa istituzione, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan e Mary Jackson sono la brillante variabile che permette alla NASA di inviare un uomo in orbita e poi sulla Luna. Si battono contro le discriminazioni (sono donne e sono nere), imponendosi poco a poco sull'arroganza di colleghi e superiori. Confinate nell'ala ovest dell'edificio, finiscono per abbattere le barriere razziali con grazia e competenza. (LaFeltrinelli)

Quand son professeur demande à ses élèves de trouver une personne qui pourrait obtenir le titre de saint dans leur vie quotidienne, Oliver décide de vanter les qualités de Vincent, malgré toute l'hostilité inhérente au personnage et sa terrible méchanceté

Hidden figures : unerkannte Heldinnen( Visual )

5 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Im Wettlauf um die Vorherrschaft im Weltraum ist die NASA Anfang der 1960er-Jahre bereit, drei afroamerikanische Mathematikerinnen zu beschäftigen. Als eine von ihnen in eine Task Group aufgenommen wird, weckt das den Unwillen ihrer weißen Kollegen, die ihr mit Neid und Missgunst begegnen. Nach einer wahren Begebenheit erzählt der eher sanft-anrührende als kämpferische Film vom alltäglichen Rassismus in den USA jener Jahre, den er an kleinen Begebenheiten festmacht. Die damaligen Rassenunruhen und die Polizeigewalt spart er zwar aus, setzt gleichwohl aber allen durch Rasse oder Geschlecht benachteiligten Menschen, die im Hintergrund wichtige Arbeit für die bemannte Raumfahrt leisteten, ein Denkmal."
