Just recently, EPMS decided to take a field trip to the Hollywood 20 Cinema to watch the film Hidden Figures for Black History Month. Hidden Figures reveals the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, all three amazing and intelligent African American women. Their job was to serve as the brains behind the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. Although their abilities and intuition were superior, the difficulty of acceptance in the world was still troublesome to them. Segregation was preventing the trio from displaying their potential to push America further in the Space Race against Russia. With perseverance and patience, the talented women were able to help with the launch into the space. Without the help of the Johnson, Vaughan, and Jackson, the US would have never advanced ahead of Russia in the race. Though to Katherine, she believed they were already on the moon.
