nicoletravelbugI thought this image perfectly summed up how I felt about attending the Melbourne Media Preview of 'Hidden Figures' last night!
I've been waiting months - MONTHS - for this movie to come out. It's the true story of a group of brilliant women who were 'human computers' doing mathematical calculations for NASA during the space race between Russia and the USA.
Why is it so important? In the 50's, people of colour were treated like second class citizens, even after racial discrimination laws had passed. At work, African Americans were separated from whites, paid less, had less opportunity for promotion, had to use seperate bathrooms, yet they still remained hungry to prove their worth despite all these set backs.
The Friendship space mission is so famous, the astronauts names are widely known, but never do you hear about the people behind it. These women's stories, these 'Hidden Figures' deserve to be told.
Seriously, GO AND SEE THIS MOVIE!!! You won't be disappointed. | #HiddenFigures #SouthYarra #Melbourne #Australia |
