Although 2016 has been the year of political upsets, we’re thankful to see the White House celebrating something major.

Our FLOTUS is celebrating one of the greatest untold stories in American history. Michelle Obama will be hosting a special screening of Hidden Figures at the White House this evening. The powerful film tells the story of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Johnson – three African-American NASA scientists who, against all odds, made groundbreaking contributions that helped John Glenn complete the first successful orbit in space.
