“After my producing partner Mimi Valdés and I heard about this project, we basically begged the producers and studio to allow us to participate. This is an extraordinary story about black women with genius mathematical minds who contributed to American history," Williams said Tuesday in a statement. "It takes place in Virginia, my home state, and at NASA, a place I've been obsessed with since childhood.”
