Easley became one of the first black female computer programmers at a time of deep discrimination and prejudice. After completing a BS in Mathematics from Cleveland State University she went on to develop computer code for rockets as part of NASA’s programmes (and energy technology, which helped make hybrid vehicles a reality). She also campaigned tirelessly to get other African Americans working and voting in the Sixties, in the face of onerous literacy tests and poll taxes. On succeeding against the odds, she said this: “If I can't work with you, I will work around you. I was not about to be so discouraged that I'd walk away. That may be a solution for some people, but it's not mine.”
