Last weekend the movie, “Hidden Figures” opened in theaters to great anticipation and eagerness( if you haven’t seen it yet, crawl from under that rock and get to your nearest theater NOW!). It’s the story of 3 black female mathematicians and engineers at NASA during the segregated 1960s. They served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history; the launch of John Glenn into orbit. The movie stars Taraji P. Henson as Katherine Johnson, Octavia Spencer as Dorothy Vaughan , and Janelle Monae as Mary Jackson. It is the epitome of #blackgirlmagic! and gives total “Yes we can!” vibes for all those who have ever been overlooked and denied!
