A Movie Recommendation: "Hidden Figures"
This is a movie about a part of American history that, for one reason or another (you name it, I am sure you an think of more than one reason), has been kept secret from the public until this film was made. Therefore, it is a movie based on actual events that shows the struggles of black women who worked for NASA in the 1960s. It focuses on 3 of these women: Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson.
Find below a video where members of the media were invited to NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida to participate in a panel discussion with cast members of the film Hidden Figures. There are no subtitles but you know they will be talking about history and the film so you may just as well understand much more than you think.
Janelle Monae, one of the actresses in the film, has a role in another of the films nominated for the Oscars this year, Moonlight, but she is also a singer. Watch this video where she sings "Tightrope" - the lyrics of the song are in the video below:
