Hidden Figures

By Claire Hilleary

Three brilliant African-American women at NASA — Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) — serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.
This movie is one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time.
Hidden Figures really lets viewers observe true segregation. The segregation is demeaning of not only an individual’s gender- but also of their race.
This movie showed me what all went behind the scenes of this launch. I never knew until now that these three amazing women really connected the dots and allowed this operation to actually succeed. Without them, it would not have been possible. 
They helped make history while slowly helping the races and sexes to come together and realize that everyone is truly equal. It is a must see for all ages.
