Happy Women’s Equality Day AND Happy Birthday to Katherine Johnson!!!
2000 steps. 120 miles. 5 honorary degrees. 4 great-grandchildren.
These are some of the numbers that have defined Katherine Johnson’s legacy. And today is her 98th birthday.
Katherine Johnson played by Taraji P. Henson in 20th Century Fox’s highly anticipated new film, HIDDEN FIGURES, is the real life mathematician, physicist and space scientist who the film is based on and the woman who profoundly contributed to the United States aeronautics and space programs with the early application of digital electronic computers at NASA.
HIDDEN FIGURES in theaters this January.
To honor this remarkable woman on Women’s Equality Day, Fox will be making a donation to STEM EDUCATION for every share of the video on 8/26.
