NASA names headquarters after its first black female engineer, Mary W. Jackson

NASA announced Wednesday that it would name its Washington, D.C., headquarters after Mary W. Jackson, the organization’s first black female engineer. Jackson, who joined NASA’s predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, as a mathematician in 1951, had to earn a special permission to join in a training program, that took place in a then-segregated school, to become an engineer.

"In 2019, President Donald J. Trump signed the Hidden Figures Congressional Gold Medal Act". I was led to believe Trump ran a racist administration. With that said, her recognition seems well-deserved.

Good for her. She did it without special privileges and on her own merits, an inspiration.

Wait, I thought Obama had already done this... Oh, Obama was only good because he was black, not good because he did things. Took a point in time when the country is "Racist" and lead by a "Racist" leader protected by "Racist colour killing white supremacist cops". Why are they pointing out that she is a black female? Mary is a females name, she looks pretty black in the pic too. How about we just hold here equal to everyone now. I understand she probaby fought through adversity to get there but for the time she was chosen to work there, she was probably the best person for the job, not the best female black for the job.

Nothing but virtue signalling. I thought we judged people on their achievements, not on the color of their skin? But good for her I guess.

Ms Jackson went to court to get a court order into the classes needed to get her into the segregated courses denied to her thanks to Jim crow laws... She won.... Wasn't a perfect win but she blew em away in engineering courses class... N she blew em away at nasa........ N nasa is a national treasure........ N John Glenn adored his human math geniuses n programmers n engineers.... John. Glenn was real deal of what once was all dear n republican...he worked for every one equally n so did his living wife... By today's Maga twisted idea Sen Glenn would be branded a rino... N less than worthy of being known as a courageous reluctant humble hero......
