The Remarkable Arkansas Woman Mentioned in ‘Hidden Figures’
Have you seen the movie Hidden Figures with Octavia Spencer and Kevin Costner? If you haven't you really need to because it's about the brilliant African American women who worked at NASA in the early 1960s. But before those historic women, there was another woman named Dorothy McFadden Hoover whose work was mentioned in the film, and Dorothy was from Hope, Arkansas.
