"Hidden Figures" Screening - Asha Purdue Global Film Fest

Tuesday, March 21 6:00 PM-9:00 PM

Description

Asha Purdue Global Film Fest 2017 presents "Hidden Figures" an incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
