Last Saturday I had the honor of leading the Empower HER Tribe as we joined thousands of women in Washington, DC and millions around the globe to march in support in women’s rights which are being threatened by the new administration. As official Partners of the Women’s March on Washington, we were well aware of the goals of the organizers to reach as many women as possible. However, it doesn’t appear than anyone anticipated an outcome of this magnitude. Read about my experience here.
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.
