The infographic attached along with this note is a timeline of several historical events that took place primarily in the 20th century. This timeline will serve as a useful piece in the classroom when one is teaching the reading, Hidden Figures, and looking to pinpoint it and the events related to it within a historical context. The timeline chronologically compares groundbreaking historical events such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the creation of NASA alongside the historical presence of the three women, Dorothy Vaughan, Katherine Johnson, and Mary Jackson, that the reading is focused around.
