Particularly like the lead actress in it (Taraji P. Henson) from the TV series "Person Of Interest" she has a somewhat different role in the upcoming film "Proud Mary" as a mob hit woman, should be worth a look (if ya like that sorta thing)
It's a coincidence that after you posted this, I learned of another black woman who played a historical role in NASA: Nichelle Nicols
I've only seen maybe two episodes of Star Trek in my entire life, but I'm sure any Star Trek fan knows Nichelle Nicols played the role of the communications officer on USS Enterprise in the original Star Trek series. The character "Lieutenant (later, Commander) Uhura" was groundbreaking in many ways.
I wonder though how many fans know why Nichols continued to play the character, even after she wanted to quit, or went on to do some work for NASA after the Star Trek series was cancelled.
I learned about Nichols on this week's episode of "Drunk History", one of my favorite shows. Say what you will about the show, but I always seem to learn stuff I probably would never otherwise know. Here's the segment about Nichelle Nichols' role in history (warning - drunk people swear a lot):
Was never a real Star Trek fan myself, but remember having a bit of a thing for Michelle back then.
The video won't play unfortunately, comes up with "the uploader has not authorised this in your country" maybe they think the language is a bit risque for us sensitive aussies.
