NASA trailblazer and “Hidden Figure”, Mary W. Jackson was born April 9, 1921 in Hampton, VA. Despite segregation and difficult odds, she became the first black female engineer at NASA.

Jackson began her career with the agency in the segregated West Area Computing Unit of NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. The mathematician and aerospace engineer went on to lead programs influencing the hiring and promotion of women in NASA’s science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers. In 2019, she was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.
