    Ragtime is a novel by E. L. Doctorow, published in It is a work of historical fiction mainly set in the New York City area from until In , the Modern Library ranked Ragtime number 86 on its list of the best English-language novels of the 20th century. TIME magazine included the novel in its TIME Best English-Language Novels from to This inspiring book brings to life the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden—four African American women who lived through the civil rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the movement for gender equality, and .

      Shetterly, a Hampton, Va., native and daughter of a former Langley scientist, tells the story of these women in the new book Hidden Figures: .   Hidden Figures is based off of the nonfiction book Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race, written by historian.

    Margot Lee Shetterly (born J ) is an American non-fiction writer who has also worked in investment banking and media startups. Her first book, Hidden Figures: The Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race (), is about African-American women mathematicians working at NASA who were instrumental to the success of the United States space .   Hidden Figures the book gives some of that history, but I would also recommend reading Reconstruction by Eric Foner and The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson to expand the view back to end of the civil war. Few people read nonfiction books, so seeing Hidden Figures is the minimum. But a warning, it’s not real history.
