Happy New Year! We have special guest Tessa Hersh (Refinery 29’s Riot, UCB) and are reviewing the new film Hidden Figures, starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae about three African-American women who played integral parts in the NASA space program. We discuss the film’s performances, the Award-buzz, if the tone of the film is problematic, the white director and white screenwriter, and if this movie helps the cause!
