Image of Hidden Figures Movie PosterThe Black History Club of Seventy-First High School recently attended a special viewing of the wildly acclaimed movie Hidden Figures.  As a group, we understand that we cannot begin to solve any issue without transparency.  As Taraji P. Henson stated during their acceptance speech, Katherine G. Johnson, Mary Jackson, and Dorothy Vaughn are hidden no more because someone was transparent enough, to tell the truth.  Many of not just the students, but adults as well, were not aware that Katherine G. Johnson calculated the trajectory for Alan Shepard, the first American in space.  The Black History Club invited others to join them for this special viewing where they were afforded an opportunity to learn about what was left out of the history books.  Join Seventy-First and the Black History Club as they continue to partner and empower our youth!
