    Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017

    As she watched the drama “Hidden Figures,” Dr. Dandrielle Lewis could easily see herself in the black female mathematicians whose stories were finally being shared decades after their behind-the-scenes work helped make America’s celebrated space program a success.

Even more importantly, she says, the movie is shining a light on black females who have a talent for and an interest in the computer, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. “They showed the world we exist,” Lewis says of black women who are contemplating or pursuing STEM careers.
