black stories series: hidden figures
02 | 26 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Join us as we celebrate black stories throughout the month of February with small and distanced community film screenings + offerings from celebrated poet and novelist Steven Dunn.
A portion of all proceeds from the film series will be donated to the Melanin Mountain Project.
We’re wrapping up our film series with Hidden Figures! 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. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as “human computers”, we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history’s greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, 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.
To attend, please make a donation of at least $10 per ticket. A portion of all proceeds support the Mountain Melanin Project!
