NASA Video on Katherine Johnson – African American History Month 2017 #BlackHistoryMonth

Thankfully Katherine Johnson’s story is getting some extra attention these days, with the recent release – and success – of the film Hidden Figures, inspired by the story of her and her female colleagues at NASA in the early 1960s. But it’s always nice to go back to source, to hear her in her own words. Which is what makes the short but thoughtful video below – published by NASA themselves – such a joy to watch, with commentary by the recently resigned Administrator Charles F. Bolden.


 
I also highly recommend this makers.com video, featuring more footage of Johnson in her own words, also with additional footage, photographs, and images of artifacts from her historical journey.
