HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle MonĂ¡e)-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.

SPEAKERS at 6:30 PM

For this special Science on Screen, we will feature a panel discussion and a presentation: local experts Monique Jordan, Asha Isaac, and Jaleesa Trapp will share the contributions of African American women in the STEM fields; and astronaut Soyeon Yi will share her experience as the first Korean astronaut through her presentation "Mindfulness From Weightlessness."

In hearing from these four women, we will celebrate the important achievements of Black women in mathematics and technology as well as the intersections of the African American and South Korean experiences in STEM.

Special thanks to Soyeon Yi and to the Tacoma Action Collective. After Tacoma Action Collective reached out to us and shared that our initial programming excluded and erased Black women, we worked with them to find a way to right this wrong and changed the presentation in order to include and celebrate Black women and their vital contributions in science and math. To learn more about this change, read our blog post here.

Speakers will present starting at 6:30 PM and the film will follow immediately.

Reviews
An assertion of humanity and civil rights that is pure cinematic nourishment for soul.
Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
This drama, which puts black women at its center, is so triumphant, highlighting both the brilliance and lives of three women whose stories have been neglected in history books, and at the same time it elevates the profile of three great actresses.
