Hidden Figures

October 19th at 6:30
Hidden Figures with guest speaker Col. Fred Gregory

Our Living History Film Series event for October will feature “Hidden Figures” and guest speaker former NASA Administrator and Astronaut, Col. Fred Gregory, USAF Ret. The film tells the untold true story of the female African-American mathematicians behind NASA in the race against Russia to send a man to space. These women, known as “human computers,” quickly rose through the ranks of NASA alongside many of history’s greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.
