Watch a young black female coder interview the stars of Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures—which tells the previously untold story of three black women who were influential in NASA’s Apollo program—is one of my favorite films I’ve seen in a long time. And in this wonderful video, 15-year-old Giovanna from Black Girls Code interviews the stars of the film about its message and the importance of representation. As Janelle Monáe puts it, “Hopefully when [young girls interested in STEM] watch this, you’ll realize that your dream is valid and you are the coolest girls around the planet.”

You can learn more on FutureKatherineJohnsons.com, which is built by Black Girls Code.
