Vanity Fair’s Salute To S.T.E.M Stars
We look forward to watching HIDDEN FIGURES, in theatres on January 6, 2017 starring a trio of actors/artists – Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson “Cookie”), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe.) Not only is this the true story of three brilliant Black female mathmaticians, but a story of historic value – the kind that should be notated in history, mathematics and astronomy history! The ‘human computers’ as they were known, sent a man to the moon against the ‘space race’ with Russia.
In salute to Hidden Figures, Vanity Fair showcased rising S.T.E.M stars we can all be proud of!
We were happy to see women of color/Latina trailblazers and role models to us all, like Kimberly Bryant (Black Girls CODE) , Dr. Mae Jemison (first woman of color in space), Diana Albarrán Chicas (Co-founder, Latinas in S.T.E.M.) and other extraordinary women.
