About Hidden Figures

Three brilliant African-American women at NASA — Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson — serve 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.

About the CHESS Film Series

This film series is designed to develop new perspectives and encourage discussion featuring several influential movies. As CHESS continues to advance and grow, we are working to broaden horizons and incorporate crucial conversations. The film series will discuss social justice, civil rights and other significant topics. We hope you join us!
