As an individual who is sometimes forgotten, Dorothy Vaughan should be recognized for her incredible accomplishments. It is important to note everything she accomplished even when she was treated as though she wasn't doing the same work as others.

Dorothy Vaughan broke both color and gender barriers by working for Nasa and was a key figure in the space race. She is an inspiration to women and people of color in the stem fields and her greatest achievements were memorialized in the 2017 movie Hidden Figures.
