"Hidden Figures" - Margot Lee Shetterly


Hundreds of people turned out Tuesday night to hear "Hidden Figures" author Margot Lee Shetterly speak at Seabrook Auditorium at Fayetteville State University. The speech was part of the Chancellor's Distinguished Speaker Series. Shetterly's best-selling book told the story of African-American women mathematicians at NASA in the '50s and '60s who were instrumental in the success of the U.S. space program. The book was the basis of a hit movie of the same name last year.
