Hidden Figures

I recently had the opportunity to see the film Hidden Figures with my 11 year old daughter.  I generally thought it was a wonderful film that tells an incredible, heretofore untold and largely unknown story of the many black women – one of whom was a math genius – involved in the first successful American space flight to the moon.  But in spite of the pride I felt in learning about these women, I also left the film quite angry as I realized the many unfortunate truths that the film illuminates.
