The 7:30PM screening of Hidden Figures will include an introduction by AMANDA GOODSON, Aerospace Engineer, former NASA Senior Executive and current I.T. Director at Raytheon!
Meet the women you don’t know behind the mission you do. The Oscar-nominated Hidden Figures tells the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson, Empire), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer, The Help) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe, Moonlight) – brilliant African-American women working at NASA in the early 1960s, women who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in American history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.
“Most of this country’s history – like most Hollywood movies – has been written by white men. Hidden Figures is a great reminder of the unsung African-American women who contributed to all our accomplishments.” – Alexandra MacAarson, Women’s Voices for Change
