C-SPAN Comes to Hampton...

On September 8th, I was invited by the Hampton History Museum to introduce Margot Lee Shetterly, author of "Hidden Figures" as she launched her book on C-SPAN in the city where Margot was born, Hampton, VA. With the work that I've done representing Dr. Katherine G. Johnson over the past two years, honoring Johnson at the Hampton History Museum, the VA Air and Space Center with the Bench dedication with the National Technical Association, it was my absolute pleasure to introduce Margot and take part in this momentous event. Johnson is a key figure in Margot's book highlighting the Black women mathematicians and engineers who helped change the Space race and put Armstrong on the moon. If you haven't read Hidden Figures, here's the link for Margot's website(www.margotleeshetterly.com) Thank you Margot for bringing the story of these remarkable women to light!!!
