Rest In Power, Katherine Johnson🙏🙏

Brilliant NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson has passed away at the age of 101.

What a life she had. What she saw in her 101 years.

I am ashamed that I consider myself an educated person, and I had no idea about Ms. Johnson until Hidden Figures came out. In an era where Black people were invisible, Mrs. Johnson’s brain broke down barriers.

I am so happy that she lived long enough to see her get the accolades while she was still alive.

Thank you for blazing the trail for others, Mrs. Johnson.


We remember Katherine Johnson, influential NASA mathematician who calculated the flight path for America’s first space mission and inspired the movie ‘Hidden Figures.’

After a lifetime of reaching for the stars, today, Katherine Johnson landed among them. She spent decades as a hidden figure, breaking barriers behind the scenes. But by the end of her life, she had become a hero to millions—including Michelle and me.

We’ve lost an icon and brilliant mathematician with the passing of Katherine Johnson.

A barrier breaker and inspiration for women of color everywhere, Katherine’s legendary work with NASA will forever leave a mark on our history. My heart goes out to her family and loved ones.

As a child, Katherine Johnson said she “counted everything: the steps, the dishes, the stars in the sky.” As a mathematician, she broke barriers to help reach those stars. Her calculations helped put Americans in space, in orbit, and, finally, on the moon. #HiddenFigures
