We are honoring black history month this week with a spotlight on some very amazing, creative, and clever girls.
These wonderful little girls dressed as the intelligent, empowering, and trailblazing women from Hidden Figures, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, and Mary Jackson for a class project celebrating Black History Month assigned by Terrance Sims of Milwaukee College Prep School in Wisconsin. If you don’t know about the movie let me fill you in…
The United States is in a race against Russia to be the first to put a man in space. NASA finds help from a group of African-American woman mathematicians, also called “human computers”. These women serve as the brains of one the greatest operations in U.S. history.
Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines with their brilliance and desire to dream big.
The photo has received national attention but three shoutouts stand out in particular, the Hidden Figures stars themselves, Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Manae.
The girls who drove the nation wild for a week with their representation of Hidden Figures are now honored with the distinguished opportunity to fly down to Pasadena, California this weekend for the NAACP Image awards! What an amazing opportunity for these three young ladies!
