Tiana Deeds, Staff Writer

Hidden Figures tells the true story behind the real women who launched the first U.S astronaut into orbit.

This movie not only  signifies how women had a great contribution to this memoral time in American history but specifically black women. Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary jackson all served to mathematically figure out how to sucessfully launch the first astronaut into orbit.

This movie is widely seen to give the people of today great hope and prove that we can surpass our boudaries.

Despite the Jim Crow laws during the time era, these three African-American women successfully showed that they can do anything…even send teh first astronaut into space.

Many people are excited for it’s debut because Hollywood is acknowledging African-Americans succesess rather than their struggles for once.
