Movie Talk - Hidden Figures

Thursday, February 11 · view days & times


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.

Join us as we discuss the film and the history that inspired the movie.

This Movie Talk is presented in partnership with Northampton Community College's Pan-African Caucus (PAC).
