Mary Jackson (1921-2005) was an American mathematician and aerospace engineer. She was the first Black female engineer to work for NASA. Her work, alongside the other women and minorities in her department, proved invaluable to the success of the US space programme.
As an African American woman, Jackson faced a great deal of prejudice in her life. Despite this, she managed to excel academically. Her love for science was matched only by her desire to help others. Throughout her career, she worked hard to help other women and minorities improve their standing in the science community and advance their careers. She even volunteered to be demoted in order to work in a role where she could be of more help to others.
Mary Jackson is remembered today as an important and inspirational figure in the history of women’s rights and the rights of minorities in America. Her story has inspired books and films, and she was recognised by NASA for her contributions after her death in 2005.
