Johnson (played by Henson), in particular, broke barriers as the only Black woman on an all-male, white research team. She and her Black female
colleagues were known as "computers in skirts."
“These women had degrees and masters in a field where they wouldn’t allow them to spread their wings and fly,” Henson said of the project. “In this film, you get to see these women finally getting their wings. Their figures won’t be hidden anymore.”
