History Has Been Made
Hidden Figures is the number one movie in the country. That’s right, three women, three B.L.A.C.K women crushed the box office opening weekend with over 25 million in gross!
The film stars, Taraji P. Henson, Academy award winning Octavia Spencer, and not so new-comer, recent Golden Globe winner, Janelle Monae. The three portray America’s best kept secrets, two mathematicians, and one engineer, three women who without them NASA wouldn’t’ve been able to orbit the Earth!
Hollywood, aka white men, often discredit casts that feature strong Black Leads due to “numbers”, and race, which no one seems to talk about, but let’s just stick with opening numbers, and box office success for a minute. Hollywood claims that’s the reason for the lack of colour in leading roles and major films, but again, and again we prove the latter to be false.
Hidden Figures is not the only film featuring leads of colour that has been successful, and it won’t be the last, if you haven’t seen it, it’s in theaters nation wide, check out the trailer below.
