HAMPTON — Christine Darden will discuss NASA‘s 2017 Hall of Honor inductees at the Hampton History Museum.

Admission to the lecture is free for museum members and $5 for non-members.

According to the city’s Convention & Visitor Bureau announcement, Darden is one of the “Hidden Figures” mentioned in the novel by Margot Lee Shetterly, which was later adapted into a film, and worked for NASA as a mathematician and engineer for 40 years.

She also helped select the 18 Hall of Honor inductees, including Mary Winston Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Dorothy J. Vaughan, who were recognized for leadership, atmospheric sciences, facilities and flight design, flight testing and military aircraft, according to the city’s news release.

The Port Hampton Lecture Series with Christine Darden is at the Hampton History Museum, 120 Old Hampton Lane on Nov. 5 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Attendees can use the free parking garage across the street from the museum.
