Hidden Figures recounts the true story of seven African American women whose critical contributions to NASA secured America’s victory over the Soviet Union in the Space Race. It skyrocketed to the top of the New York Times bestseller list when the book’s film adaptation was released in December 2016, featuring Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monáe, and Kevin Costner, among other stars. The film received nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress for Spencer at the 89th Academy Awards.
