Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm at the NCG Theaters, 2500 Showtime Drive, Lansing, MI 48906. Proceeds from this advance screening will support the many programs CEO supports in the Greater East Lansing Community.

The film tells the stories of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, three Black female mathematicians who began working for NASA in the 1950s and charted the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit during the Space Race from NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia during segregation. Before the title of computers came to refer to the laptops, desktops and calculators that we use today, these women, who did the math by hand were known as “computers.” And while few know the story of how these three black women helped the US win the space race, even fewer know that all three of these women were members of the Black sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha.
