If you’ve seen the film Hidden Figures, you’ll be interested to know that Katherine Coleman Goble Johnson, Dorothy Johnson Vaughan, and Mary Winston Jackson were initiates of Alpha Kappa Alpha.

Here are links to previous posts about sorority women who were members of GLOs before STEM was a term. They were pioneers in their fields and there are scores and scores of others who stories have not been widely told.
