Black In Space: Breaking the Colour Barrier
America's experiences during the Civil Rights Movement and the Space Race are well documented. However, few know about the moment these two worlds collided, when the White House and Nasa scrambled to put the first black astronaut into orbit. This is the untold story of the decades-long battle between the US and the Soviet Union to be the first superpower to bring diversity to the skies, told by the black astronauts and their families, who were part of this little-known chapter of the Cold War.
