1-Sentence Summary: When Katherine's boss reprimands her for taking long breaks, she tells him the reason "there's no bathrooms for me here" and makes him aware that the nearest colored bathroom at NASA is half a mile away from their office.
Excerpt: "There's no bathroom for me here. (What do you mean there's no bathroom?). There is no bathroom. There are no colored bathrooms in this building. Or any building outside the West Campus, which is half a mile away. Did you know that? I have to walk to Timbuktu just to relieve myself. And I can't use one of the handy bikes. Picture that, Mr. Harrison. My uniform. Skirt below my knees, my heels, and a simple string of pearls. Well, I don't own pearls. Lord knows you don't pay coloreds enough to afford pearls! And I work like a dog, day and night, living off of coffee from a pot none of you wanna touch. So, excuse me if I have to go to the restroom a few times a day."
