I love seeing girls step up and make a change. Check out this interview with the cast of Hidden Figures done by 15 year-old Giovanna from the group Black Girls Code. Founded in 2011, Black Girls CODE is a not-for-profit organization that works with girls from underrepresented communities from the age of 7 to 17. It teaches them about the field of technology and helps to increase women of color in the digital and tech worlds.
“We’re so proud to partner with 20th Century Fox and have our girls participate in the FutureKatherineJohnsons.com website,” Black Girls CODE founder Kimberly Bryant said. “Building a tech future for young women of color across the country not only depends on the work of partners like 20th Century Fox, but it also relies on these girls learning the history of the great trailblazers like Katherine, Dorothy and Mary who came before them and paved the way. By seeing the story of these great women of NASA on the big screen, our girls can see themselves as the future tech leaders and innovators of today and tomorrow.”
Hidden Figures comes to theaters January 6, 2017.
