The story is built in the year 1962 when Soviet Union and United States both were in race to be the first nation to put humans into space. John Glenn was the first American to orbit the Earth in a space ship. But this movie is definitely not about him or of America being greatest of all nations in space endeavor. The story is about three Black-American women who worked in America’s space agency NASA and were the greatest mathematicians of their time. This was the time when apartheid was at its peak and there was gender inequality, also the laws were different for whites and blacks. The movie shows that while Glenn was dominated by white men, it was the effort of these black women who earned him the laureate of being the first man to travel into space. There is no mention of their name but they had great influence, thus the name Hidden Figures.
