“Outlier: the story of Katherine Johnson”

She counted everything: steps to the road, steps to the church, the number of dishes and pieces of silverware she washed…Katherine Johnson, the African-American mathematician who was born in 1918 in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., was a counting machine—or in the terminology when hired by NASA in 1953, she was a “computer.”

“Outlier: The Story of Katherine Johnson,” an hour-long documentary produced by MotionMasters, will focus solely on the young woman from West Virginia who graduated high school at age 14, college at age 18 and went on to become a physicist, space scientist and mathematician famous for accuracy in celestial navigation.
