Share Hidden Figures with 100 young black girls.
Recently, my family and I had the pleasure of watching Hidden Figures and learning about Katherine G. Johnson and her amazing contributions to NASA's first human space mission. She was know as the "human calculator" and was even called on by John Glenn to confirm electronic computer calculations before he agreed to launch. While the realization of her contributions were astounding, knowing that Katherine was a young black woman in the midst of an extremely segerated nation was beyond inspiring. I watched my daughters (6 and 8 years of age) engage in a non-animated film in a way that I had not witnessed before. They commented on wanting to know more about Katherine and questioned why her story had not be shared previously. Because young black girls everywhere deserve to know and witness their greatness through the story of Katherine G. Johnson, with your help, the monies raised from this campaign will afford a private screening of Hidden Figures and refreshments for 100 black girls from Indianapolis, IN. Let us honor the legacy of Katherine G. Johnson and her NASA peers while giving the gift of inspiration to several young black females! No donation is too small. Every contribution is greatly appreciated.
**If this goal is exceeded, efforts to send classes of students across Indianapolis, IN will be made.**
