One of the female black mathematicians who helped put American astronauts on the moon will speak at a Richmond school.
Christine Darden was featured in the book “Hidden Figures,” which then went on to be an Oscar-nominated movie.
Darden joined NASA in the late 1960s as a data analyst at Langley Research Center in Hampton.
She also studied and worked as a professor at Virginia State University.
Darden will speak at the Richmond Montessori School at 10 a.m. on Friday.
