  • Your Excellency on February 7, 2021

    My people are brilliant. Her contribution to science gives me so much pride and if she can do it 60 years ago, we can do it today. We're standing on her shoulders. Thank you Miss Johnson and your family. 🙏

    Her first job ever was in the town I live in- Marion, Virginia- at a black public school named
    The Carnegie School- in 1937, as a teacher, right before Hampton and NASA.

    "Hidden Figures ".
    Hmmm. Great history movie. Took me back to the era of 1950's.
    The electric coffee pot, mom had one.
    The Nash Metropolitan, my dad owned one and beat a Jaguar in a race going backwards, on Gravel! My that was fun!
    The TV's in the store window.
    The line up folks alongside the road.
    Oh so many memories, though not all good.

    ThThe bronze figure is absolutely wonderful!

  • Farmer on September 5, 2021

    These are the types of women/people who's name matters.
    The parents of the world need to recognize these things to overcome the real problem.
    It's not one group! Humanity is being hijacked by a few. What you see in the world is not the doing of humanity! It's the doing of corporations, government, media and Hollywood. Help end it! Stop labels, you are human! Don't let them keep you separated and fighting each other over lies, take down the liars.

  • Rebecca Gillispie on September 13, 2021

    Katherine Johnson was an American Hero!

  • chuanist on October 9, 2021

    I'm really starting to hate having words appear when someone is speaking. Very distracting.

  • Tyrisha Smith-Grady on October 15, 2021

    This woman’s mind is outstanding and above another level.

  • Studio 22, Lusaka Zambia on October 17, 2021

    Amazing and inspiring woman! She was more than a mathematician! She deserves a Nobel prize for advancing humanity's space cause! She has contributed to our hopes of being an interplanetary species. Besides, everything about going to space is physics! Smart black woman AKA 'human computer'!

  • James Labustro on November 16, 2021

    A great inspiration, a great mathematician, and a great person. I'd like to watch "Hidden Figures" because it fits me on that beyond, not just a person but also part of her story as well. We loved you and you will be missed at all.

  • Betty Hinman on December 12, 2021

    She was amazing!
