About the Show

HIDDEN HEROES is based on the book Hidden Human Computers: The Black Women of NASA, by Sue Bradford Edwards and Dr. Duchess Harris. This play is a world premiere, written by Shá Cage.

“It doesn’t matter what you look like, what your size is, what your color is. You can be anything you want to, but you do have to work at it,” says Annie Easley’s mother to her young daughter. In the 1950’s and 60’s the black women of NASA fought against racial and gender discrimination for a place on the leading edge of math, science and technology. Be inspired this spring, as we tell the stories of how these women were influenced as young girls to eventually make critical contributions that launched US astronauts into space and returned them safely back to Earth.
