‘Hidden Figures’ is the Ultimate Reflection of Black Girl Magic

“Yes, they let women do some things at NASA Mr. Johnson, and it’s NOT because we wear skirts. It’s because we wear glasses.”

You better tell ‘em! Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae and Octavia Spencer are giving us SO much life in the new Hidden Figures trailer. The movie doesn’t come out until next year, but we are so ready to hear the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn and Mary Jackson. The brilliant African-American women and former NASA employees, made a huge impact on many people and their work highlights the achievements of American engineers, mathematicians and scientists. By crossing all gender and race lines, the trio served as the brains who helped launch astronaut John Glenn into orbit. With that said, watch the trailer – we’re sure you’ll be inspired too.
