VIDEO: Harris Explores Legacy of Hidden Figures on The Denver Channel
"Successfully getting humans into space and back is risky business. However, it was made possible less than a century ago thanks to help from some extraordinary Black women known as ‘Hidden Figures’.
“My name is Duchess Harris and I’m the co-author of a book called ‘Hidden Human Computers: The Black Women of NASA’ and my grandmother was Miriam Daniel Mann and she was one of the first hidden human computers at NASA," Harris said.
Harris, and American studies professor, has dedicated a lot of time to researching the legacy of her grandmother."
