The FOX studios movie focuses on the space race of the 50s and the African American scientists who worked behind the scenes to launch the first American into orbit. The movie currently being called “Hidden Figures” (AKA “To The Moon and Back“) is based on Margot Lee Shetterly’s book “Hidden Figures: The Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race.” The movie adaptation focuses on African American mathematician, Katherine Johnson. Taraji P. Henson is set to play the scientist. Tariji recently got a Golden Globe for her work as Cookie on the FOX hit TV series, “Empire.”
“Hidden Figures” will focus on Johnson, who along with her colleagues Dorothy Vaughn and Mary Jackson, served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history, John Glenn’s historic launch into space. The three women crossed all gender, race and professional lines while embarking on the mission. John Glenn flew the Friendship 7 mission in 1962 which was the fist mission to successfully orbit the Earth and return home safely.
