The MIT Black History Project has done an amazing job compiling stories of the Black experience at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) since it was established in 1865. They’ve archived over 3,000 pieces of history, and they have a page dedicated to the people who worked with both MIT and NASA. NASA’s predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), has its origins at MIT, and NASA has closely collaborated with the institute since World War II.
