Event description

Description

Historically, Black women and girls have been symbolically annihilated from history books and overall media representation. This adversely impacts their sense of worth and value. It limits their ambition to stereotypes and stigma that are prevalent in mainstream media. Girls Like Me Project will host an exclusive screening of the Fox Film, Hidden Figures, starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae as a means to advance our mission to expose girls to the powerful contributions of Black women in spaces that have otherwise muted their impact. Our goal is to inspire girls to dream big and identify as change agents as an alternative to the depictions of violence, misogyny, and hyper-sexualized images and media they often consume. The screening will feature:

  • Breakfast Buffet
  • Interactive math and science games
  • STEM personality quiz
  • STEM panel discussion
  • STEM-themed social dance off
  • Spoken Word
  • Giveaways and prizes
  • Engagement with girls support and resource services
