Afternoon Family Film

Sunday, March 27, 2-4:30 p.m.

Everyone is invited! Our RE Coordinator Ulrike Galasinski, RE families, and the BLM Committee are hosting an afternoon screening of this award-winning film on Sunday, March 27 at 2 p.m.

The 2017 NAACP Image Awards, celebrating the best in film, television, literature, and music that represent the diverse culture of the black American experience and community, gave the Outstanding Motion Picture award to this film, as well as Taraji P. Henson taking Outstanding Actress in the film. 

Film critic Odie Henderson writes that the film is the story of “three real-life African-American women who helped decipher and define the mathematics used during the space race in the 1960s. This film tells their stories with some of the year’s (2016) best writing, directing, and acting. Co-writer/director Theodore Melfi (adapting Margot Lee Shetterly’s book with co-writer Allison Schroeder) has a light touch not often found in dramas like this, which makes the material all the more effective.”
