HIDDEN HEROES

The Black Women of NASA

A HIDDEN HISTORY COMES TO LIFE
WORLD PREMIERE

APRIL 26 – MAY 19, 2019
AGES 7 & UP

HIDDEN HEROES is based on the book Hidden Human Computers: The Black Women of NASA. By Sue Bradford Edwards and Duchess Harris. Published by ABDO Publishing, Minneapolis, MN. Copyright © 2017

“It doesn’t matter what you look like, what your size is, what your color is. You can be anything you want to, but you do have to work at it,” says Annie Easley’s mother to her young daughter. In the 1950’s and 60’s the black women of NASA fought against racial and gender discrimination for a place on the leading edge of math, science and technology. Be inspired this spring, as we tell the stories of how these women were influenced as young girls to eventually make critical contributions that launched US astronauts into space and returned them safely back to Earth.

Three love stories, a murder mystery, and a nuclear espionage plot converge in this comedy about marriage and other explosive devices. It's 1952: America's on the verge of the H-bomb, Eisenhower's on the campaign trail, and Senator Joe McCarthy's daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy. A sharp-eyed look at love and tying (and untying, and retying) the knot.
