Brilliant NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson has passed away at the age of 101.
What a life she had. What she saw in her 101 years.
I am ashamed that I consider myself an educated person, and I had no idea about Ms. Johnson until Hidden Figures came out. In an era where Black people were invisible, Mrs. Johnson’s brain broke down barriers.
I am so happy that she lived long enough to see her get the accolades while she was still alive.
Thank you for blazing the trail for others, Mrs. Johnson.
