“Hidden Figures” has an extended and explanatory subtitle: "The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race." The life stories of these black women were so immediately compelling the movie was produced about simultaneously with the book.
Shetterly writes that many readers have asked how these stories remained hidden for so long. She writes they were not "so much hidden as unseen."
