Recently I went to my friend’s sleepover, and we watched the movie Hidden Figures. And it really struck my interest.
This movie is a true story, about (from the left) Mary Johnson, Katherine Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan, three brilliant African-American women working for NASA in the Cold War. They are so smart, to give you the picture, that Katherine actually started College in the 6th grade! But they aren’t treated like they should be. Everyday when one of them has to go to the bathroom, they have to run 1.2 miles to get to the nearest colored bathroom. And they have to be put in a different room to work in than white women. But, Katherine gets promoted and goes the room where white men work! Though they stare at her and act snobby by labeling the coffee pitcher so she can’t have coffee, and blacking out essays the men need to bring to her to be checked over, she still proves her knowledge. Together, these women face Racism and prove what they’re capable of. Try this movie, it’s really really good!
