*Hidden Figures

Celebrate Black History Month
Event detail
Add to my calendar
 

Join us for a Sunday afternoon matinee celebrating Black History Month. Based on true life events, the 2016 non-fiction book Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly, tells of a group of African-American women working for NASA who serve as the brains behind sending a man into space during the United States space race against the Soviet Union.  The brilliance of these female African-American mathematicians, and their ability to dream big, situates Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson, and the other math whizzes of this project firmly in the pantheon of heroes of U.S. history.  Organic popcorn will be served. 

For more information call 415-355-5717 or visit us at the Anza Branch.  This is a free program, all are welcome!

These cultural events are free and open to the public.
