02nupe DEFINITELY gotta support this film for the trail blazers before us. #BlackGirlMagic #Positiveimages "ATLANTA — Taraji P. Henson hates math, and Octavia Spencer has a paralyzing fear of calculus, but that didn’t stop either actress from playing two of the most important mathematicians the world hasn’t ever known.

Both women are starring in “Hidden Figures,” a forthcoming film that tells the astonishing true story of female African-American mathematicians who were invaluable to NASA’s space program in the Jim Crow South in the early 1960s.

Ms. Henson plays Katherine Johnson, a math savant who calculated rocket trajectories for, among other spaceflights, the Apollo trips to the moon. Ms. Spencer plays her supervisor, Dorothy Vaughan, and the R&B star Janelle Monáe plays Mary Jackson, a trailblazing engineer who worked at the agency, too.

Slated for wide release in January, the film is based on the book of the same title, to be published this fall, by Margot Lee Shetterly."

02nupe Happy birthday to me!! Wow such a blessing to see another year of life. Just up thinking about a lot, Lord knows I need him to guide my path... Sometimes I feel a pressure (I'm sure some of it I place on myself), the more enlightened you become, it just alters your mindset. With that said, 33 was AMAZING!! So many blessings, I'm so thankful. I lost two grandparents, but somehow I'm still here and managed to progress. Just wow, hello 34!!! #Mid30s 🏾 I welcome you and look to continue towards whatever the Lord has for me to do! Hope to help others. Help open doors, make this world a better place. 🏾 #Thankful 2w

02nupe 33 collage. Man oh man my Jesus year was a blast!!! Just a few of the places I visited and moments captured This year. I didn't think I could top 32, but 33 saw me going more places, more often, oddly enough with less people though on most trips. Reached new financial levels that to me are just crazy. I'm ready for whatever the LORD has for me at 34. Also crazy I'm entering my mid 30s, I was just in my 20s like yesterday! Very #ThankFul to God for so much. 33rd year also saw me lose my grandmother and my grandfather. Important to spend time with folks, tell them you love them, and just enjoy them while you can cause no life is forever in this form. 33 🏾️(old school with the physical prints of photos #80sbaby) 2w

02nupe #TBT inspired to post this cause, one of my travel buddies just text me and her a** done went to aruba solo dolo. Before I met her, she had been to over 30 countries by herself......#LIVING I only imagine if she waited on her friends to do stuff, that list would be cut by 75%. #mindset little things like that are motivating to me, like Nike says "Just Do it"
Pictured here in Brazil, Brussels, Egypt & Colombia..... Just #BlackGirlMagic certainly is #motivation as well! #DST #Kapsi 🏾
