THROWBACK MOVIE: HIDDEN FIGURES


Although I am wondering what the young and adult Katherine always saw whenever they looked outside the car window for long, perhaps, they probably saw the calculations…

FOX 2000 PICTURES PRESENTS HIDDEN FIGURES

 

The 2016 movie was about the three extra-ordinary bright African-American women Katherine Johnson (Taraji. P. Tenson, Lydia Jewett), Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) who worked at National Aeronautics and Space administration (NASA) The trio were regarded as “genius” in mathematics, but despite their brilliance, were denied their rightful positions because of their colour; racism was really eating deep into the nation as well as the company.

For instance, Dorothy won’t be made the supervisor in the Computation department by her boss Vivian Mitchell (Kristen Dunst) because she is a black woman, but Dorothy was doing the work of a supervisor, while Katherine suffered a lot of rejection and disapproval when working in the Space Task Group of NASA, despite the fact that she was exceptionally skilled in analytical geometry and eventually identified the exact numbers that enabled Astronaut John Glenn take off into orbit and land safely. Mary Jackson on her part was only allowed to take night classes just in a bid for her to get a degree in engineering in a school that doesn’t allow black women despite the fact that she had the skills; this didn’t deter her to make the move as she later became NASA and America’s first female African- American aeronautical engineer.

View more on the movie based on a non-fiction movie by Margot Lee Shetterly about black female mathematicians who worked at the national aeronautics and space administration during the space race.

Ogefash's Styl

Born in the 80’s, Ogefash picked up writing early in her secondary school days at International School, University of Lagos (Unilag). She took it professionally after her university days at the University of Lagos where she graduated from the Department of Mass Communication. She is a writer of several short stories some of which have been published in the magazines. Some of her popular stories are: A Night to Remember, The Special Gift, Haunted, Preparing Ahead of Time amongst others. Her novel "Looming Danger" published in December 2015, was highly recommended by people. She has worked with several media outlets some of which are Spur Magazine and Upcoming Magazine. She is an educationist. With her love for children, she took up the task of supervising and taking care of children at the After School Department of Heritage School before her resignation. Her unique strory telling and song teaching skills endeared her more to the kids she worked with. Ogefash is a goal getter, a pace setter and always strives for excellence. She likes to impact and solve problems in a creative way regardless how challenging they may be. She has in-depth knowledge in reporting, editing, social media and other media related works. She is a seasoned writer and very passionate about her work. Interestingly, her blog is the first in Nigeria to start reviewing Nigerian and foreign movies and also write the movies' plots scene by scene. Ogefash blog is also the first to translate songs, interprete and give a full detailed analysis about music and artistes in Nigeria, Africa and America before other blogs started emulating her style. While other blogs provided just music lyrics alone, we took it higher by not only providing lyrics, but translating, interpreting and analyzing as well. It is also the first blog to give detailed analysis of adverts. Interestingly, Ogefash blog also known as Ogefash Photo Blog is the first blog all over the world to blog with lots of interesting pictures to support all articles. Ogefash says "I don't keep male friends because they always say "sex" is part of friendship. I don't keep female friends because they are always bitchy. I only keep people I can call more than a friend!" Ogefash has an affinity for TV reality shows. In 2018, she represented Nigeria in the PanAfrican TV reality game show "The Maltavator Challenge" powered by Nigeria's number one malt drink packed full of energy giving vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6;Malta Guinness. The show brought together four African countries Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia and Coted'ivoire who competed for the grand prize of 20,000 dollars. Undaunted by any task in her field, Ogefash is highly energetic and creative. She is a rare gem and a gift to this generation.
