This is the powerful story of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program. Each amazing woman brought her incredible ability to the work she loved. But they all struggled, sometimes because they were black, sometimes because they were women, and most often because they were black women in a white man’s world. At the cusp of Black History Month and Women’s History Month, this movie is a beautiful story of success and a powerful lesson about oppression. Starring: Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe.
The film is rated PG. Childcare is available if requested be Wednesday, February 28, by contacting Lilly Hutchins.
