The above is a screen grab on an iPad, best I can do this morning. I was looking at the photo above, said to be the women of NASA, the so-called “hidden figures.”
I have not read the book and won’t be, nothing personal. I just have other pursuits. But looking at this photo, I am a little perplexed. The manner of dress indicates late 1940s early 1950s, a full two decades before Apollo 11, even before Sputnik. Further, in that era, a black woman front and center is an anomaly.
I am guessing that this is a college photo, maybe sorority, doctored, of course, to allow the black woman in. Any thoughts?
