Katherine Johnson

@RepValDemings:

Katherine Johnson broke barriers of race and gravity. She helped humanity reach for space and touch the moon.

She opened the wonders of the universe to every little girl who dreams of the night sky.

When you look at the stars tonight, remember her. #BlackHistoryMonth #BHM
