Hidden Figures
It is not often that I go to the Cinema…and even less frequently that I watch a film twice within 10 days…in fact I don’t think that has ever happened before I saw #HiddenFigures.   This movie touched me on many levels… -       the courage of 3 women who used their talents to #BeBoldForChange to progress themselves and others. -       the unique talents they had that got American ast...
