About this event

LUU’s Liberation Coordinator team present a free screening [with popcorn!] of the 2016 movie Hidden Figures which tells the story of three brilliant African-American women at NASA - Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson. Who played an integral role in launching astronaut John Glenn into space. There'll be room for discussion of the film as well.

The film is 127 minutes long.

This Black History Month we’re exploring a whole host of ‘Black &’ identities, check out our full list of events here.
