Yesterday I watched the movie “Hidden Figures.”
The movie is the true story of three women who helped elevate the United States space program during the 1960’s when the US and Soviet Union were in a race to send a man to the moon.
Overcoming the obstacles of racism and sexism in the workforce, these women proved their place through hard work and ability.
The spirit of the movie soared as the US space program overcame obstacles to get our astronauts into space.
While we are all familiar with the heroes who went into space, this story gives us a look at the heroes on the ground who put them there.
Nominated for a number of Academy Awards this past year, I would rank this film with any of the other great “space” theme classics. I loved it!
Hidden Figures is a testament of what greatness can be accomplished when the talents of everyone is encouraged. When the person most qualified is given an opportunity to excel regardless of sex, orientation or color.
Check it out, Hidden Figures is a great movie!
