A Women's History Month film and discussion is being hosted at Danbury Library this weekend. The film, based on the book "Hidden Figures," tells the story of three, female, African-American mathematicians who were integral in the success of the USA space programs.
A discussion will follow the movie centered around the barriers confronted by women of color then and now, with a focus on encouraging young women of color to pursue careers in science and math. Registration is encouraged for the event on Sunday from 1:30 to 4:30pm at Danbury Library.
The event is also being hosted by the Danbury NAACP and American Association of University Women.
