“Overnight Code is a must-read for anyone seeking inspiration to overcome social barriers and to shatter glass ceilings.” —Carolyn Porter, Marcel’s Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man’s Fate  The inspiring story of a groundbreaking African American female engineer who created the first computer-designed ship for the US Navy  Raye Montague was an ambitious little girl “Overnight Code is a must-read for anyone seeking inspiration to overcome social barriers and to shatter glass ceilings.” —Carolyn Porter, Marcel’s Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man’s Fate  The inspiring story of a groundbreaking African American female engineer who created the first computer-designed ship for the US Navy  Raye Montague was an ambitious little girl in segregated Little Rock. She grew to be a woman who spent a lifetime educating herself, both inside and outside of the classroom, so that she could become the person and professional she aspired to be.   Where some saw roadblocks, Montague only saw hurdles that needed to be overcome. Her mindset helped her become the first person to draft a Naval ship design by computer, using a program she worked late nights to debug. She did this as a single mother during the height of the Cold War, all the while imbuing her son with the hard-won wisdom she had accumulated throughout the years.   Equal parts coming-of-age tale, civil rights history, and reflection on the power of education, Overnight Code is a tale about persistence and perseverance when the odds against you seem insurmountable.

    I would 100%% recommend this book! Not only did I learn so much, but I was truly inspired by this story. The writing felt accessible and was not full of technical jargon.

    Overnight Code should be required reading for high schoolers and young professionals. This book is great for someone looking to get a really good overview of 20th century U.S. black history from World War II, to the Civil Rights Movement, to the Cold War. It’s also a good insight to the double burden faced by Black women in the U.S. in the 20th century as they dealt with being overlooked and underestimated by their white peers while also trying to take care of a family. In fact Raye’s experience Overnight Code should be required reading for high schoolers and young professionals. This book is great for someone looking to get a really good overview of 20th century U.S. black history from World War II, to the Civil Rights Movement, to the Cold War. It’s also a good insight to the double burden faced by Black women in the U.S. in the 20th century as they dealt with being overlooked and underestimated by their white peers while also trying to take care of a family. In fact Raye’s experiences resonated with me as Black women living in America in 2021. We are still fighting for inclusion and equality. This book also offers career advice for all young professionals but especially if you’re interested in the fields of engineering, computer science, and math. Raye Montague’s story is incredibly inspiring, frustrating, uplifting, and heartfelt and I’m so glad more people will know her name now that this book exists.
