Hidden Figures Are Worth Their Hype

pharrell-runnin-hidden-figures

Well I’m no movie critic expert, but I can rave about the movie “Hidden Figures” without others sharing my sentiment. Everyone has a right to his or her opinion, and I personally found the movie worth its hype.  Why? The movie has many dimensions hidden in layers   of the storyline.

It’s a movie poignant and quite pertinent in the societal climate of today. There are many parallels transcending generations. If you’re looking for all the truths to reveal itself in the storyline you will miss out on some of the truth not included.

Early in the 60s, three African American women, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, and Mary Jackson, former employees of Langley Research  Center, played key roles in assisting in the launching of USA’s Friendship 7 satellite rocket on February 20, 1962. The backdrop is the segregation era. These women maintained roles of obscurity until their stories were exposed to the world in theatres.

Despite of, no matter how hidden these powerful figures were- their truth is found in the hidden realities of history.

This is a must see if you not have seen. A wonderful way to show tribute to observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration. The movie carries the theme of liberty and justice for all. The way I see it,  “Hidden Figures” is a reminder of how far we have come and how far we must go.

A Symphony of Brotherhood

Violinist, Miri Ben Ari’s rendition of “Symphony of Brotherhood” is a reminder society should become a symphony of brotherhood like Dr. Martin Luther King eloquently spoke about in his infamous speech “I Have a Dream.”

In actuality, society is really like a woven blanket. It’s entwined with the tapestry of diversity and cultural differences. It’s woven with the threads of political, religious, and philosophical differences. Its beauty is more visually seen when all its threads are tightly knitted and joined together to create a perfect blend of harmony.

Dr. Martin Luther King understood a nation is healed, and it is whole when its citizen can come together and walk in unity.  When there is no unity, like a woven blanket with holes in it, things will unravel and fall a part.

As harmonious notes to a song, we should live in society like a symphony of brotherhood. Then, as Dr. Martin Luther King says in his I Have a Dream speech, “we will be able to work together, pray together, to stand up to freedom together, knowing one day that we will be free.”

“Men often hate each other because they fear each other

My perspective of Day 1 – Fear: Oftentimes it is the differences of

others we fear. It’s the fear of the unknown.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr had a dream.

What if you could dream and your vision came true…

Would you dream big enough to move mountains

and accomplish the impossible?

Would your dream hold the key to reveal secrets

of medical mysteries and cures?

Would your dream be the catalyst for

world peace and unity?

Would your dream provide a beacon of hope

and leave a legacy of a better world?
