The Museum Shop at Historic Fort Steuben has a fine selection of books for Black History Month (February) and Women's History Month (March). A new addition covers both months: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly - the untold story of the black women mathematicians who helped win the space race. The author, an exceptional African-American woman herself, grew up in Hampton, Virginia where she knew many of the women in the book. Not only does the book celebrate the tenacity and talents of these women, it reminds us of the sad legacy of segregation and Jim Crow laws that still affects our country today.
