‘Hidden Figures’ and the journey to celebrate NASA’s black female pioneers BY Nsikan Akpan December 23, 2016 Excerpt: Kevin Costner, who plays a forward-thinking NASA director, lamented that Katherine Johnson’s contributions remained outside the mainstream as America’s first rides into space were cemented into history.

It’s going to reinforce peoples ideas that this is the way they need to be.”
