  1. I finally saw Hidden Figures yesterday. I had tears in my eyes from the opening scene to the rolling of the final credits. Born in 1961, the year at the beginning of the film, I was transported to a time that shaped my life, in no uncertain terms. As a black woman with a master’s degree from MIT, I now realize that, despite my personal reluctance, I am a role model for many. Hidden Figures helped me understand the wider impact of my full potential and, at age 56, encourages me to make a difference. Thank you!
