Media Club Event

 

ANNOUNCING OUR NEWEST MEDIA CLUB EVENT ON AUGUST 14th

Contra Costa NOW is pleased to announce our latest event in our Media Club. Following our first successful event in June, we have scheduled our next event on Friday, August 14th, from 7-8:30 pm.

The movie we will be discussing is HIDDEN FIGURES (2016).

According to flicks.com:

The award-winning film is based on a true story. Hidden Figures recounts how three Black American women served as the brains behind several key 1960s NASA missions. Stars Taraji P. Henson (TV’s Empire), Janelle Monáe (Moonlight), and Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer (The Help).

Physicist, space scientist, and mathematician Katherine G. Johnson (Henson), along with Dorothy Vaughan (Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Monáe), were instrumental in executing one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit. It was an achievement that restored the United States’ confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The gifted trio crossed gender and race lines and inspired generations to dream big. Kirsten Dunst and Kevin Costner co-star.

The film is available to rent on Amazon Prime and Google Play for $3.99.  We will be hosting the meeting on Zoom (Link below).   Be sure to watch the movie prior to joining the discussion.
