Next week’s Wednesday (8th of March) it’s time for the International Women’s Day! What better occasion to get together and watch Hidden Figures? Join us to watch an inspiring and true story on three African-American female pioneers!
“HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)-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.” (https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hidden_figures/)
We will gather either on Tuesday (7th of March, at 17:30) or on Wednesday (8th of March, at 17:30 or 20:00) depending on when most of you have time. Comment, drop us a message, and let us know if you want to join! Exact date & time will be announced by Friday evening.
