Special Guest: Duchess Harris
In honor of the 25th annual African Americans in Science event and the opening of the heralded Hidden Figures motion picture, the museum will host a book-signing with Duchess Harris on January 14. Harris is a Macalester College professor who co-wrote Hidden Human Computers: The Black Women of NASA. The book tells the story of Harris’ grandmother, Miriam D. Mann, and her colleagues, whose engineering work in the 1940s was critical to the success of NASA’s space flight program.
Duchess Harris will do a meet-and-greet and book signing from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the lobby.
