Hidden Figures is the incredible untold true story of Katherine 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.

The screening was followed by a panel discussion and networking around issues that still surround ‘Women as Hidden Figures in STEM, Arts and Culture, and Beyond’.
