“Hidden Figures” STEM Movie Opened This Weekend

Hidden Figures tells the inspiring, true, and highly acclaimed story of three brilliant African American women working at NASA –Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson — who helped develop our space program and served as the brains behind the launch of the first American into orbit.  It opened this weekend nationwide, including at these local theatres.  Here’s an excerpt of the book on which it’s based and the Boston Globe’s review of the movie.
