In celebration of HIDDEN FIGURES, celebrities and social influencers attended HIDDEN FIGURES Screening & Soundtrack Listening Party at Means Street Studio in Atlanta hosted by DJ Drama, Don Cannon and DJ Senseon Wednesday, November 16th.
The event was attended by celebrities including: Pharrell, Janelle Monae, Usher, Ludacris, Big Krit, DC Young Fly, Jasmine Guy and many more.
Before the Soundtrack Listening Party, we were invited to the screening where Janelle and Pharrell welcomed us and set up the importance of the film.
Shot in Atlanta, this bio-drama is directed and co-written by Theodore Melfi which tells the untold true story of three brilliant African-American women, Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glenn Powell) into orbit and guaranteeing his safe return, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence and turned around the Space Race. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
I must say it was a BLESSING to be invited to this room. Hands down, it’s Oscar worthy! There are several moments of tears. There’s also many moments of witnessing the resilience of brilliant black women. This is a historic film that everyone must see.
Hidden Figures opens in select theatres on Christmas Day, and will release nationwide January 7th.
