A Remarkable Piece of History | Review of ‘Hidden Figures’

By Cynthia Ayala

Hidden Figures starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer & Janelle Monáe
20th Century Fox
Image Credit: IMDB

“Based on a true story. A team of African-American women provide NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program’s first successful space missions.”

  • IMDB

Such a remarkable film that brings to life the history not only about NASA and the space race but also about three amazing women who were instrumental in the space race and the war on racism.

Taraji P. Henson plays Katherine Goble, African-American physicist and mathematician in the aeronautics space program. She plays this incredible woman who had to face not only racism but sexism in the space department as she fights to prove her worth to the program and that her smarts go beyond her gender and race.

Thirteen Years Later (The Danilov Quintet: Book 2)

Such an exciting novel!  This novel was amazing!  I hate Iuda with every fiber of my being.  But that’s why this was such a great book, you think your enemy is one thing, when it facts it’s a whole different person, and yet not.  That’s what I love about Kent’s writing, his characterization.  He is able to create such imaginative and realistic people that make … Continue reading Thirteen Years Later (The Danilov Quintet: Book 2)
