HiddenFigures

Next year’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration for many will probably include a visit to the movie theater. FOX 2000 Pictures is set to release “Hidden Figures”, a film about a group of black women in the 1960’s who provided NASA with important data needed to launch the program’s first successful space missions. The film that will star Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae, follows Katherine Johnson (Henson), a brilliant black mathematician who, along with her colleagues Dorothy Vaughn (Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Monae), collectively known as “human computers” as they assist in the successful launch and safe return of astronaut John Glenn into space.
