.I have been waiting for this movie to come out since I heard about its power and influence. It will be on the big screen as of end February 2017.
“The film shares life of mathematician Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), budding engineer Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) and computer supervisor Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) — all three brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.”
Anyone in the Cape Town area keen to come together and watch the movie, please respond in the comment section below. If you aren’t in Cape Town but will be watching the movie take a picture, post it on Instagram and hashtag #HiddenFiguresxWomandla and/or cc me @sam_gqomo.
I’ll be creating a collage of all the women in South Africa coming together and celebrating womxn all over the globe.
