Description
As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.
"Junior high and high school classes across the country should take field trips to see this movie."--Richard Roeper.
"Adding social issues to its many inspirational themes, Hidden Figures equals one satisfying slice of history that'll entertain adults as well as kids looking to the stars."--USA Today.
"Like the calculating women whose lives it celebrates, 'Hidden Figures' knows what it's doing."--Los Angeles Times.
