Hidden Figures is the story of three black women who made important contributions to the U.S. Space program both before and after the “human computers” were replaced by digital computers. The women face entrenched racist and sexist attitudes. However, their persistence and outstanding work boost the U.S. presence in space and blaze a path forward for achievement based on merit. The film is available on multiple platforms. Suggested discussion questions are attached – feel free to add/delete.
