Hidden no more…

The touching and empowering movie; Hidden Figures, proved to be more than successful as joy spread across the stage and filled the auditorium, at last night’s Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

Based on a true story about 3 African- American women who aided NASA in their space race in the 60s, the brilliant minds of Katherine G Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson; played by Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe; used science and maths to provide invaluable contributions- that almost went unnoticed. But thanks to the above actresses, these inspirational women’s story has been told and it is hidden no more! Triumphing, the Hidden Figures’ cast won SAG Award for outstanding performance/ ensemble in a motion picture! If you’ve seen the uplifting movie, you will understand why and if not (yet), I highly recommend watching it as soon as possible! It will make you feel slightly uncomfortable at times (as you watched what generations before us went through), but it will also make you laugh, cry, high-five the air and appalled with sheer happiness.

With melanin popping and everything on fleek, Henson, Spencer and Monáe were certainly slaying- before, during and after yesterday’s awards ceremony; and quite frankly, I cannot get enough! Can you?
