[PHOTOS/EVENT RECAP] HIDDEN FIGURES – Janelle Monáe (@JanelleMonae) Private Dinner x Spelman College (@SpelmanCollege) Convocation!

In celebration of HIDDEN FIGURES, Janelle Monáe hosted a private dinner with Stem Leaders on Tuesday, November 15th in Atlanta at Livingston Restaurant + Bar. Janelle also spoke to students at Spelman Convocation at Spelman College for a special HIDDEN FIGURES Q&A Discussion on Thursday, November 17th.

 HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

Check out pictures from the event below and be sure you catch Hidden Figures in a theater near you in January!
