A nod to Raye Montague, the Little Rock native who the U.S. Navy calls their “hidden figure”

Raye Jean Jordan Montague was many things during her lifetime. She was an engineer with the U.S. Navy during a time before those doors began opening for women. She was an education advocate and a mentor. She was, her son tells us, a loving mother, a caring daughter, and completely devoted to her family. She also happened to be born Black during the Jim Crow era in Little Rock, a position that meant she had to fight for education and career opportunities that segregation denied her.
