  • HMS went to see "Hidden Figures"

    "The movie Hidden Figures was amazing! It showed the civil rights struggle of the time period along with the tension of the NASA space project. The movie featured three, very intelligent, African American, NASA workers who I didn't even know existed. The movie was moving, inspirational and had many humorous moments and sassy comebacks. This is definitely a movie I would recommend watching. Even though there are plenty of meanings of the title "Hidden Figures", I think there is only one moral of the story: Struggle will only bring success with hard work and effort. I give this movie 5 stars out of 5!" Mason Spencer
