Series: Feminist March
This is part of Feminist March 2019
In partnership with the Hollywood Theatre’s Feminist March programming, Brown Girl Rise co-presents the history-making story of HIDDEN FIGURES!
Based on the book of the same name, 2016’s HIDDEN FIGURES pays tribute to the groundbreaking achievements of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer), and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae), three black female mathematicians whose work at NASA directly contributed to launching John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit and led to America finally landing on the moon. Facing a segregated work environment, structural racism and sexism, and having their work co-opted by and attributed to their supervisors until only recently, HIDDEN FIGURES tells the astonishing untold story of some of the most brilliant minds to pave the way for both humanity’s path to space and the beginnings of the civil rights movement.
