Black Woman Power!

 

 

 

The first black woman to work at NASA was not a janitor. She was Mary Jackson the engineer who blazed the trail for other Afro-Americans to follow.

 

Mary’s task of “getting American astronauts into space” is now being recognized by NASA, which will name its headquarters in Washington DC after her.

 

Mary’s daughter, Carolyn Lewis, called her mother a “trailblazer who paved the way for thousands of others to succeed, not only at NASA, but through this nation.”
