Title of Performance: Commanding Space - The Rise of Annie Easley and the Centaur Rocket

Country: United States


In the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, young Annie Easley knows she can be something more. In a true story of dreams, hardships, and self-determination, Annie becomes one of the first African American human computers at NASA. Initially working on airplanes, she soon realizes her destiny is to be on the team of mathematicians that launch the Centaur Rocket into the Space Race.  Commanding Space is an important story about a persistent and intelligent woman whose desire to succeed in science and technology proved stronger than the prejudice that would have denied her.
